We Have a New Catalog

On Wednesday, March 26th the library will unveil the Red Arrow Shared Catalog. The new catalog will allow you to search the collections of Bridgman, Lincoln Township, and St. Joseph libraries' at one time. Then if you find something you want at another library, you are welcome to go to that library and borrow it. 

Our new catalog has many new impressive features including: a display that automatically adapts to your smart phone or tablet, one-click downloading for eBooks, a graphic interface that allows kids to explore the catalog independently, and a list feature that allows you to track what you have read and what you want to read in the future. We would be glad to show you our new catalog.  Come in and ask for a demonstration.
