Lakeland Library Cooperative has new telephone notification system.

We are pleased to announce that the Lakeland Library Cooperative, of which the Tamarack District Library is a member, now has a new telephone notification and renewal system! The system, called i-Tiva, went live on December 6th, with many people already receiving calls for books to pick up or return. If you wish to opt out of the telephone system calls, you may sign up for email notifications. This system is also used for automated telephone renewals and account information. By calling 616-453-2575, you can renew items that are checked out on your account. To use the telephone system, you need to have your library card number (printed on your card and starting with 21287), and your 4 digit pin number. If you are not sure what your pin number is, try using the last 4 digits of your phone number. Give us a call if you experience any issues with the new system.

Midnight at the Masquerade Murder Mystery Party!

“The rustle of silks and feathers under muted conversation was probably the last thing heard by the tragically and unexpectedly deceased at the Billionaires’ Club Annual Masquerade Ball. With a mystery under each feathery façade, unmasking the killer may be quite a challenge. It’s up to you to determine which partygoer is guilty, bring this crime to justice, and save the party!”

The Grand Rapids Murder Mystery Company will be performing at the library on February 1st @ 6:00 pm. This event is free to attend, but you must have a ticket at the door as space is limited. Sign up now online. This fantastic opportunity is being sponsored by the generosity of the Friends of the Tamarack District Library. Light snacks will be provided, dressing for a masquerade ball is optional. See you there!

Announcing our Little Free Library placements!

TDL is so pleased to announce the placement of 13 Little Free Libraries around our service area! A Little Free Library is a small weather-proofed box containing books that can be borrowed and returned. We have many people to thank for constructing, placing, and maintaining these little libraries because as you know any project “takes a village”!

Pictures of some of our artists.

Ten LFL’s were constructed by Eagle Scout Lee Geister, with the remaining 3 being constructed by Jerry McCoy, Richard Warchuck, and Randy Robson. Many thanks go out to their hard work and skills for making these libraries. The libraries were then decorated by many area residents and installed throughout the library’s service area. They can be found in Pine, Hinton, Douglass, Maple Valley, Winfield, Cato, and Belvidere Townships. For a map of them, please visit the following link: Little Free Library World Map. 13 people have agreed to steward these libraries, taking care to keep them amply stocked and clean.

There are many sponsors and donors that, without their financial help, this project would not have been possible. Our thanks go out to: Lakeview Family Chiropractors, J.G. Construction, Jim & Sue Draper, Parker Hannifin, Lakeview Elevator, Chapin Family Farms, Community 1st Federal Credit Union, Frank & Kathy Nerychel, Mike & Lisa Johnson, Lakeview Lions Club, Friends of Tamarack District Library, Claire’s Body Shop, Memory of Dr. Gary Baker, DeWitt Lumber, Cantwell Bros. Hardware, Six Lakes Hardware, and the Behrenwald family.

Lastly, but not least, we wish to thank Sue Draper for her hard work organizing the placement and care of all of these libraries. If you are in an area where you see one of these LFL’s, make sure you stop in and take a book, leave a book!
