Welcome to the Betsie Valley District Library!
Our community was greatly blessed by the wonderful gift of a state of the art Library building by The Wayne and Joan Webber Foundation; we officially opened the doors to the new building in March 2014. We welcome all to "your" Library! We strive to make our Library a welcoming haven for all that visit and where we wish to grow the love and magic of reading with all of our community.
Consequently, you may conduct any Library business on this site, such as renewals, reserves, etc., with the exception of paying fines.
Also, you may research the Library catalog; Title / Author / Keyword searching.
We encourage you to use the Up North Digital Collection to download ebooks, movies and music!
MeL is a 24/7 online library for Michigan residents.
