Coldwater Kids' presents: Traveling Tales goes to India


Please join special guest, Father Mathias and friends as they share the wonders of their homeland, India. We'll explore the culture, language, customs, food and drink on Saturday, November 3. The program begins at 10:30 am and lasts until noon. Due to limited space and supplies, we ask that you pre-register on-line or by calling 517-278-2341 ext 103/104.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn and explore the vast and vibrant land of India! This program is for children ages 4-12 years and was made possible through the generosity of the Coldwater Kiwanis Club.

Need a Computer? You will need a Library Card


We are excited to introduce our new and improved computer sign up system. Starting the week of 10/15/18, patrons will use their library cards to sign in on library computers. This new system comes with many great features, including:

  • Users will be able to extend their own computer sessions (up to 120 minutes per day - depending on availability), no need to come and ask a staff member for more time
  • Users will be able to lock their computers if they need to step away, ideal for those with sensitive information
  • Reservations are available 7 days in advance. This will guarantee you a computer at a specific time ensuring you get the technology that you need. See a staff member for more information.
  • Visitors to Branch County will be able to use the computer with a Guest Pass.

No library card? No problem! Visit your local BDL branch to get your card for FREE for residents of Branch County. Start the application online at www.BranchDistrictLibrary.org/apply
