Friends of the Library Support Digitization Project

Friends of the Petoskey Library President Gayle Mroczkowski presents Valerie Meyerson, Petoskey District Library Director, with a check for $22,000 to support a newspaper digitization project. After completion of the project (August 2018) the public will be able to search the text and photos of Petoskey newspapers dating back to 1875 via the Greenwood Cemetery website.



Annual Dinner Party

Thank you to all who attended the annual meeting and dinner held at the Petoskey-Bay View Country Club.  We welcomed Gayle Mroczkowski as the new FOPL President; featured speaker, author Beverly Kay Brandt, gave a captivating presentation; and the silent auction was full of wonderful items whose proceeds fund library materials.
