Welcome to the website for the City of Reading, Michigan. Our community motto, 'Traditional values, progressive spirits', is truly reflective of how we see ourselves. We are steeped in traditional values, cherishing and honoring our past while remembering the important things in life.

Our progressive spirits show that we look towards the future, not only in our planning, but also in working together to reach personal and community goals. We consider ourselves a small community with a bright future.

Located in western Hillsdale County, metropolitan areas such as Jackson Michigan, Fort Wayne Indiana, and Toledo Ohio are within an hour or so of Reading. Interstates I-69 and I-80/90 as well as Highways US-12 and M-49 all make your journey into Reading easily accessible from all parts of the tri-state area.

Our town is supported economically by local stores and small businesses, agriculture and partly as a commuter city to the Hillsdale and Coldwater areas. We also have an industrial park, supported by several manufacturing facilities, including specialty metal production.
