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: 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.

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.
