Grand Rapids Public Library

The Ryerson Building is the older wing of the main public library in Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States. It was the gift of Martin A. Ryerson, a native of the city and grandson of Antoine Campau, brother of Louis Campau, founder of the city. In 1967, the library more than doubled in size with the addition of the Keeler wing.

The building was opened in October 1904, and was extensively renovated for its centenary year.
