Moore Public Library, A District Library

Moore Public Library, A District Library

The library district is made up of Worth Township and the Village of Lexington, but we serve the entire local community.


     The Charles H. Moore Library of Lexington was opened in the present building January 17, 1903.  Mrs. Mary Moore Sleeper, married to Albert E. Sleeper, governor of Michigan (1917-1920), along with her sisters Ella and Emma, deeded the property and building to the Village for library purposes only. They named it in honor of their father. The building had been constructed in 1859 by John Devine for his law office and was remodeled for a library during the early part of the 1900’s. The library was    launched with 1300 books from Oscoda, donated by J. L. Wood, an uncle of the Moore sisters. 

     The Library became a District Library in 2004 and was renamed the Moore Public Library.  The district is made up of the Village of Lexington and Worth Township. The library does however serve everyone who enters its doors and does not charge out of district fees. 

     In 2017 the library acquired the adjacent building to the east of it and is now in the process of a Capital Campaign to renovate and connect the two buildings to add more space for materials, technology, and a meeting room. The Library was recently awarded a $572,366 grant to renovate the annex and along with the pledges and donations thus far we can begin the construction this fall of 2023.

Construction has begun as of October 23rd.  Hooray! We are still raising money for the project as we will be taking out a USDA loan to finish the annex.  Donations can be made on-line at the donation button on the top right hand side or send a check to the library. On October 12th the library was awarded $10,000 from the Sanilac Women Who Care.
