  • Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Traverse Area District Library and Newton's Road, STEM kits are NOW AVAILABLE at the Betsie Valley District Library! The two organizations obtained a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services which will put STEM kits in all of the libraries in our region!
    The STEM kits vary from hands-on tactile learning, to coding, to a digital microscope, and lots of fun stuff in between. These are a great resource for home school, in person, or virtual students! Kits will be available for a one week checkout with renewal allowed.
    Many thanks to Traverse Area District Library and Newton's Road.

Important return information: please DO NOT return the STEM kit through the book drop, PLEASE call the Library during open hours to set up an appointment to return it to the front desk or have a staff member pick it up curbside.
