Alaska trip

The Boy Scouts of Honor, Troop 267 will present "Our Alaskan Adventure", sharing their experiences during their trip to Alaska.
Please join the Tundra Nights, Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016 from 2PM - 4PM, at the Betsie Valley District Library for a presentation of their trip to Alaska! They will be showing a PowerPoint of their trip and talking about their experience!
We are pleased to provide this online presence for your convenience and enrichment. The Library is very grateful to the Institute of Museum and Library Services for their support in bringing you our website.

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!

We encourage you in using the Michigan eLibrary or MeL:

MeL is a 24/7 online library for Michigan residents.

  • MeLCat allows you to order books, audio books, music, movies and other materials and have them delivered to your participating library. View a video to familiarize yourself with MeLCat. We are in the process of becoming a MeLCat participant Library.
  • MeL Michigana contains photographs, diaries, oral histories, local records and historical Michigan data. 
  • MeL Gateways include specialized resources such as those in health, business and areas for kids and teens.

Information about times, dates, speakers, etc. for Library programs and special services will be available on this site.

The Library Board and Library staff invite and encourage you to use the website and
