How to Find Out About Library Programs
The Petoskey District Library has on-going programs for Adults and Young People; from the Friends @ the Carnegie Programs sponsored monthly by the Friends of the Library, to regular story times in the Children’s Room, to the weekly movies of the Petoskey Film Theater, to Book Chats with the Friends. We invite you to sign up for one or more of our e-newsletters (form above) to get up-to-date information about activities and programs.
We put all of our events on our Events Calendar, and have a phone number that lists all our events each week (231-758-3107).
Book Chats with Friends of the Library
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. Remaining Book Chat dates for 2014 are: March 20, April 17, May 15, June 19, July 17, August 21, September 18, October 16, November 20 and December 18
Friends @ the Carnegie
All Friends @ the Carnegie programs are held at the Carnegie Building at 451 E. Mitchell Street, unless otherwise noted. The programs are offered at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month, except December. All Friends @ the Carnegie programs are open to the public and admission is free.
