PENTWATER — The Pentwater Library celebrated its 165th birthday with an open house on Wednesday evening.

In a speech by Sheryl Mase, the director for the co-op the library belongs to, she said that 93.5 percent of residents have, and regularly use, library cards.

“Pentwater is small, but mighty,” she said. “Life is not necessarily on the beach, but you can still enjoy a good book there.”
