The map on this page gives a graphic representation of the Library District.
Chelsea District Library was formed in 1998 by the Village of Chelsea and Dexter, Lima, Lyndon and Sylvan Townships when they entered into a District Library Agreement.
Under the terms of the agreement, these municipalities agreed not only that the public library should serve their residents but that the residents must approve the formation of the District Library by adopting an operational millage that would be sufficient to pay the expenses of the library serving this population.
On October 5, 1999 the voters in the district served by the Chelsea District Library approved a charter millage for the district library. This successful millage election set in place the final building block for the district library - the resources to provide library service to all residents in this district.
