The Ludington Public Library started with the Ludington Library Associationon April 9, 1872. On June 11, 1881, there was a major city fire and the library building burned to the ground, destroying all the library contents. Earnest interest to rebuild a new Ludington library was kept alive in the 1890s by a group of women that had an organization called the Pere Marquette Literary Club. They first made contact with Andrew Carnegie around 1903 concerning obtaining funds for the construction of a new library. In 1905 Ludington received one of the 53 grants given to Michigan communities from Andrew Carnegie for the construction of libraries.
