Public Library Board

Based on the adoption of the Library Millage by Bath Charter Township voters on November 7, 2017, Bath Township is now required to establish a Library Board comprised of Bath Township residents.

Six members will be appointed to the Board by the Bath Charter Township Board of Trustees for a term expiring November 2020, at which time these become elected positions.

The next regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meeting will be held on Monday, November 20, 2017. The review of applications and the appointment of members will begin at that meeting.

Interested residents should fill out the following Application for Appointment and return it as soon as possible to Bath Township.
