Thanks to support from the Friends of Darcy Library, Benzie County residents both seasonal and year-round currently have access to Up North Digital. This means you can borrow ebooks as well as audiobooks, music, and movies when you’re out of the area, if the roads are too snowy to drive, or the library is closed. Items may be read through an internet browser or downloaded onto computers and digital devices (Kindles, iPads, smartphones, etc).
