Story Adventures

Join children’s librarian Megan and educator Kate Cohen from the Learn Local Academy of TOPOnexus on Wednesday, August 11, & August 25 at 11:00am on the library’s outdoor labyrinth for a short story time followed by a mini walking adventure that takes you out and about town. We will use our senses (including wonder!) to explore four themes that make Petoskey special – water, rocks, trees, and town. Registration is required. This program is appropriate for children ages 3 – 5 years old, but siblings are always welcome to join!

Graphic Novel Club

Graphic Novel Club


July 6, July 20, August 3, and August 17 at 1:00pm

Let’s share our love of graphic novels! Every meeting, you will get a graphic novel to keep. No requirement to read the book beforehand! We’ll talk about the book and do fun activities. Registration is not required and we will meet outdoors on the library labyrinth. Graphic Novel Club is recommended for ages 7-12. Books will vary in elementary age level.

Thank you to the Friends of the Petoskey District Library for funding the purchase of the graphic novels!

Book Stack

Book Stack is a book recommendation form for kids or grown ups of kids to use. The youth services staff will pick out five titles we think you’ll love and email you the list! You can choose to place the items on hold or come into the library to pick them up. If you need us to put the books on hold, let us know!

Try it out!
