Welcome to the Traverse Area District Library (TADL)
TADL – A Network of Community Libraries
Three of these facilities (Fife Lake, Interlochen, Peninsula) are Member Libraries that receive most of their support from the districtwide millage. Although Member libraries have independent elected boards, hire their own library directors and operate autonomously, they are full partners with TADL in that their collections are shared throughout the district and they participate in the online public catalog as well as the TADL provided public computing and wireless access systems.
The Traverse Area District Library provides dynamic resources and innovative services to stimulate intellectual curiosity, facilitate lifelong learning, promote literacy, and nurture personal enrichment.
Traverse Area District Library (TADL) consists of a network of libraries serving Grand Traverse County through the following locations: Main Library – Traverse City, East Bay and Kingsley branch libraries; the Fife Lake Public Library, Interlochen Public Library, and Peninsula Community Library.
