MiLibraryQuest: Summer Edition begins June 1st. This is a virtual program in which teens ages 13-18 can learn about unique animals and Michigan libraries.

NEW DIGITAL BOOK OPTIONS
We are now part of an agreement with three large institutions to share access to our Overdrive collections: Lakeland Library Cooperative, Midwest Collaborative for Library Services and the Suburban Library Cooperative. This means that including our 15,000 + titles, our patrons will now have access to over 100,000 titles. This has massively expanded the collection.
More books to choose from, free with your library card.
In order to gain access to these collections using a browser, simply link here on our home page to our ebook/audiobook collections at the Great Lakes Digital Library. You will see links to the sharing libraries at the bottom of the page.
