Free Ice Skate Rental

Our Ludington Library has ice skates, with free rental, for all library card holders. Call Ludington (231) 843-8465 during our normal hours, or email the library at Lud@mcdlibrary.org to tell us the size(s) needed. Our staff will pull the skates and you will receive a call, text, or email letting you know that the skates are ready for you! Ice skates will be spray-disinfected when they are returned.

One great place to get acquainted (or re-acquainted) with skating is on the synthetic-surface skating rink in the Waterfront Park, under the Band Pavilion. The skating rink was installed by volunteers at the end of December 2020. The park is located at 391 S. William St. in Ludington.

Libraries have always been a part of what makes a community special, and we are excited to be part of this unique Pure Ludington experience,” Library Director of Mason County District Library Eric Smith said. “This season, bring in your library card, check out a pair of skates, and enjoy the downtown ice rink.
