Mercantile Bank of Michigan today announced it will donate its historic downtown Ionia building, located at 302 W. Main Street to the Ionia Community Library. Mercantile Bank continues to operate two Ionia locations.
“We recognize that this building has a long and rich history that is important to the downtown Ionia business district, as well as to the people of Ionia,” said Ray Reitsma, President of Mercantile Bank. “As a local Michigan bank with deep roots in the community, we knew that the future of this building should be to benefit the people, and we couldn’t think of a better new owner and caretaker than the Ionia Community Library. A place accessible to all, where people come together to learn, collaborate and enjoy their community.”
