Battle Creek Library's goals include providing up-to-date technological services and working with local leaders and citizens to provide information, education and entertainment. On December 21, 2009, the Library Foundation received a donation from the Lied Foundation & Trust for $100,000. The new building was named Lied Battle Creek Public Library in memory of Ernst F. Lied in memory of his parents, Ernst M. Lied and Ida K. Lied, and a dedication plaque will be displayed on an interior wall of the library. To learn more about our Foundation's completion of the project go to Foundation , or to view our next special event go to Lauren Pelon.
