September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

This September, we want you to Show Us Your Card! Snap a selfie in front of our library-themed backdrop in the lobby holding your new Petoskey District Library card and tag us on Instagram @petoskeydistrictlibrary to be entered into a drawing for a library mug full of Downtown Bucks! Already have a card? Make sure your library card is up-to-date and play along, and why not invite a friend to get a card!? (Make sure to @your friends in your photo so they can be entered, too). If you’re not on Instagram, don’t fret! Just email your photo to to be entered into the drawing. Please note, if your Instragram profile is set to private, we will not see your entry. Feel free to email your photo.

Get It!
If you don’t have a Petoskey District Library card, what better time to sign up? Visit our How to Get a Library Card page for more information, or give us a call 231.758.3111.

There is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Through access to technology, media resources and programs, a library card provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions, connect with community, and save money, too!
