New Service - Books by Mail for Homebound Patrons:

Books by Mail is a service available to all residents who have a valid library card from any Newaygo County Library but are unable to visit a library due to a temporary or permanent physical condition, age or infirmity.  On completion and approval of the registration form, patrons will receive 3-4 books per mailing, based on their reading preferences.  When finished, flip the address card over and mail the materials back to the library in the special mail bag.  No postage is required. This service is made possible by a grant from the United Way of the Lakeshore.           Registration form          Information flyer

Internet and Computer Services:

The Library provides Internet access free of charge to all patrons.  There are eleven Internet stations for use by the public.  Each is equipped with word processing capability. In May of 2005, software was installed on each station limiting the amount of time spent on library computers to one hour per day.  This is to assure that all patrons have equal access to the computers.

In May of 2006, the library added Wireless Internet access.  This allows patrons to bring in their laptop computers and access the Internet.  No waiting for a computer, sit anywhere, no time limits!

Reference Service:

Adult, Children's and Local History staffs provide reference service on site, via the telephone, fax or email. Now available online!

Interlibrary Loan:

Grant Area District Library is a member of the Lakeland Library Cooperative and participates in the interlibrary loan program.  This allows area residents to go beyond their local libraries holdings to borrow materials from any other Cooperative member library.
