There is a FREE small lending library located in the Township Office. Presently there are about 500 books of all sorts for your enjoyment. We welcome donations of both fiction and non-fiction books. It is open during regular office hours and everyone is welcome to come in and browse and borrow.


In addition to our Lending Library, Tarbutt residents have full access to Sault Ste. Marie Library Services.  We encourage our residents to utilize the wide variety of programs and services offered by the Sault Libraries.  Please be prepared to show proof of residency.
