Service of the Month

For the month of February, Ask Us About our Book Buddy Outreach Services

Did you know–every week Library staff reaches beyond our doors to engage seniors at our area senior living facilities?  For the past 16 years, librarian Lisa Scholl has provided outreach to a number of facilities and today her list of stops is up to seven:  American House, (2)Harbor Village Senior Apartments, Independence Village, Pineview Cottage, Residences at Harbor Watch, Riverview Terrace. All of the materials that are available to patrons who come to the Library are available to outreach patrons.  Each week, Lisa hand-selects and delivers a variety of fiction and nonfiction, large print books, audio-visual materials and other materials that residents have specifically requested. Lisa also coordinates special library presentations to the residents including book talks and hands-on technology training. The Petoskey District Library is dedicated to providing materials for people of all ages and needs.  A low-vision machine used to enlarge the print of books and documents is available at the Library, plus information on the Braille and Talking Book Library.  A huge thank you to all of our visitors and patrons who stopped in to make Valentine’s Day cards for Lisa to deliver to these facilities!
