After Hours Pick Up Now Available
We are thrilled to announce we now have outdoor lockers for 24/7 materials pick-up! This service was made possible by the Friends of Benzie Shores District Library. Thank you Friends!
We have 10 Outdoor Lockers for contactless hold pickup. To get started, place items on reserve from our catalog and set your pick method to "lockers". Please give us at least 4 business hours to get your items ready for you. You will be notified once your materials are ready for pick up. Lockers are located on the south side of the building (facing the water).
Not sure what you want or need help placing a reserve? Call us at 231-352-4671 and we are happy to help! Or use our handy INSTRUCTION sheet to get started.
The library has work/reading space inside the library and library WiFi is accessible in the library parking lot and patio. We also have hot spots and Chromebooks available for check out. Chromebooks and Hotspots may be borrowed for 3 days. Out of district residents are not eligible to check out devices. Contact us for more information and availability.
