The Friends of Bath Township Library! 


Library services have grown and flourished in Bath Township in recent years. In 2013, we first opened our door as the Bath Township Library Center in the Four Corners Shopping Center. We then became a full-fledged library on January 1, 2018. Finally, we moved to our bigger, current location in the shopping center in December 2020. 


The millage to support a library in Bath was recently renewed by a wide margin in November 2021. And despite challenges keeping the library open during the COVID pandemic, we continue to serve our community well with the loaning of books and other materials, interesting programming for adults, youth, and children, and several online resources for those holding a library card.  

The Friends of the Library formed during our early stages. A small group of individuals have continued to meet regularly to support the activities of the Bath Township Public Library and thereby support literacy and learning in our community. Accomplishments so far include: the purchasing of the original lighted BTLC sign above the front door and the ‘OPEN’ sign; raising funds for the purchase of books & materials; purchasing laptops, a projector, and a DVD player for ongoing programs; purchasing a Wii gaming system for weekly Teen Time activities; purchasing the annual license for viewing of movies on premises; purchasing or finding items for our new location such as the outside bench and wonderful piano inside; and ongoing outreach through community & school event participation. 

However, as we move forward, we need a much larger Friends group to support the needs of our library. Many of you have made donations to the library in the past. But now we want you to join our Friends group as well. Some of you will pay our small membership fee and hopefully join us at future Friends’ events. We are hoping that others of you will also become more involved attending our monthly meetings or getting involved in one-time projects we will be undertaking. Whatever level of participation you choose, please get one of our brochures to complete and join our group. Alternatively, you can let one of our library staff know that you are interested in becoming a member and we will get in touch with you.  

Our library needs all of us to thrive! 


Become a new member of the friends of library. All are welcome.
