Van Buren District Library

Residents who live in the Mattawan Consolidated School District (Voting Precincts #1, 2 and 6) do not pay a library millage, and as such, do not have access to the Van Buren District Libraries. Texas Township has chosen not to pursue a library millage for this service, as a millage for library service is actually much higher than the cost of an annual library membership. Anyone, regardless of which precinct they reside, is able to purchase a membership to the Van Buren District Library.
