In this time of Covid-19…

Hey Teens and Tweens!

Times are hard for everyone right now, and we want you to know that we have not forgotten about you! We miss you and cannot wait until we can all be together again, having fun and hanging out…it may be a while, but it WILL HAPPEN!

For now, we must do all we can as individuals to stop the spread of this virus, by physically distancing from others, washing our hands, and wearing masks when appropriate.  Let this pandemic bring out the best in us, such as our care for each other and our willingness to sacrifice personal comfort for the well being of others.  I know the teens and tweens in our community are some of the most wonderful, caring, and compassionate people around…let your light shine for all to see!

In the meantime, please use our digital resources! Hoopla, Kanopy, Libby, Mango Languages, RB Digital…they are all wonderful and can help alleviate some of the ennui (fancy for “boredom”). In addition to our digital resources, the Library of Michigan offers so much through…please take a minute or two to check that out!  As part of this year’s Summer Reading Program, we are also working on virtual programming to keep you engaged and, yes, entertained. We will have BINGO cards for all who want to participate with reading activities to complete for a prize, and each month of the summer we will have a virtual trivia night, a Teen Maker Tuesday at-home project, and online scavenger hunts! Keep checking the Petoskey District Library’s Events calendar for more fun stuff to come!

Until we see each other again, stay safe and healthy!
