We have a new website! We’ve upgraded the look and functionality to help make your experience more enjoyable and user friendly. We hope that you will find all information easily and conveniently on our new site! Also, we look really great if you’re reading us on a mobile phone (as many of you do). Keep checking back because our site is a work in progress and we will continue to add new information and new features.
Website Contest and Drawing
To celebrate the launch of our newly redesigned website, we've "hidden" a trivia question somewhere on our website. Follow these simple steps to enter the contest:
1. Peruse the website.
2. Find the "hidden" trivia question.
3. Click on the question to email your answer.
The first 5 people to provide the correct answer will receive a discount coupon to use in the BTS online shop.
WAIT! That's not all!
Every person who correctly answers the trivia question will be entered into a drawing to be held on March 1st.
Winners will be notified by email and we'll publish their names in the March e-newsletter.

Are you a member of of the Betsy-Tacy Society? If not, please consider joining today! This is an exciting time for the BTS. Today, social media allows us to reach many more people and share the wonderful Betsy-Tacy books and others written by Maud Hart Lovelace with new readers! You can be a part of the effort to keep these books in print and Maud's legacy alive. Our supportive members have allowed us to purchase the childhood homes of the author Maud Hart Lovelace and her best friend Frances "Bick" Kenney Kirch. These homes are now listed as National Literary Landmarks. We couldn't have done this without the financial support of our membership.
As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, we rely on membership dollars to as our main financial support. YOU can help preserve the Lovelace legacy by joining the Betsy-Tacy Society. WE NEED YOU! Together we can reach new heights!
