Story Adventures

Join Miss Lisa and Kate Cohen from the Learn Local Academy of TOPOnexus on Wednesday, May 5, May 19, June 2 and June 16 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. 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. This program is appropriate for children ages 3 – 5 years old, but siblings are always welcome to join!

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!

Visiting the Children’s Room

Normally, the children’s room is a great place for families to read together, play a board game, work on puzzles, and meet new friends. However, due to COVID-19, toys, puzzles, and games are stored away and we ask that visitors social distance.
