We've got a new computer system!
And that means we have a new catalog (see link below). You can now put holds on books, and much more. Log in with the last 3-5 digits of your library card number (after the zeroes) and your phone number (no area code or dashes necessary). Check it out!
Check books out from the local collection here in Bath. At the beginning of June BTPL will become a participant in MeL - the Michigan eLibrary. That means your interlibrary loans will be available directly in Bath. You may currently enjoy this service through our partnership with DeWitt District Library - Interlibrary Loans are awesome!
Do your kids love Legos? Stop by on the first Saturday of the month and build Lego creations!
Do you need technology assistance? Stop by on Tuesdays between 6 and 8 to work with our Library Clerk, Alex to figure out how to get your email on your phone - and many other things!
Do you want to push yourself to read books you might not otherwise select? Join The Book Club - meeting the 4th Tuesday of the month and get started!
Sure, we know you can use Netflix, Hulu and a lot of other services to get movies, documentaries, etc. But you do pay subscription fees for those services. You can check out a DVD at the Bath Township Public Library and enjoy it at no extra cost! Thanks to many wonderful members of our community, we continue to receive donations of DVDs that keep our collection fresh.
Check out a Michigan Activity Pass!
The Library Network manages a great program coordinating free access to some of Michigan's treasures. Watch this space for more information; the program gears up for the summer on 5/24.

We are on the move...
Midnight, December 31st, 2017, the Bath Township Library Center became the Bath Township Public Library. Staffing and hours will remain the same as the newly appointed Library Board of Trustees works through a checklist of what must be done to establish a legal public library.
Thus far we are:
Through June 30, DeWitt District Library will continue to offer library services to Bath Township residents, as we upgrade our systems and services. Many thanks to Director, Jennifer Balcolm, and Circulation Manager, Jennet Francisco for their encouragement and moral support.
The BTPL is participating with Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS) to be aMeLCat library (to continue interlibrary loans), and are joining Woodlands Library Cooperative (to provide eBook access). All of this will take time, and the board of trustees thanks you in advance for your patience!
