Friends Book Chats
Join the Friends of the Library when they host monthly Book Chats. The public is invited to attend Book Chats once a month and share a recently read book or an old favorite. Each individual will be allowed three to 5 minutes to review their book and make comments about the author. The event is open to the public, is on the third Thursday of each month from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and there is no charge. There is also no sign-up, and it isn’t necessary to attend each month. For more information, contact the Library at 231-758-3121. Upcoming Book Chat dates are: September 18, October 16, November 20 and December 18
Friends @ the Carnegie
Friends @ the Carnegie is sponsored by the Petoskey District Library and the Friends of the Library. The programs are offered at 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month, except December. Admission is always free and the programs are open to the public.

A Bitter Memory: The Burt Lake Burn-out of 1900
The October 15, 1900 “burn-out” of Indian Village, on northern Michigan’s Burt Lake’s Indian Point peninsula, has been termed by some revisionist historians, “an unfortunate but legal act.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. It was an immoral, unjust, cruel, and totally illegal act that was allowed to stand based on the malfeasance of state and federal government officials. Not only should it not have taken place, the perpetrators should have been prosecuted for arson, and made to pay for the complete restitution of the village homes and property. Those government officials who failed to exercise “due diligence” in their officially offered opinions prior to the illegal act, should have been held accountable.
