Have you ever needed to know what time the Merryville Branch opens on a Tuesday or when Lego Club started on Saturday, but you didn't know where to get the information? Did you know that all of this information is available on BPL’s homepage and that it is easily accessible from a smartphone, tablet, or home computer?

How to find library hours, locations, and events: On the lefthand side of the homepage look for the green boxes located below LIBRARY. This section was designed to give patrons easy electronic access to library information. Here is a short description of what you will see when you click on each of the first three links.

Hours and Locations: This link will list each of our six locations and the corresponding hours.

Calendar of Events: This link will take you to a monthly calendar of library activities. Every activity that the library hosts will be on this calendar, along with information about the event. You can also sign up for events that require prior registration.

My Account: By accessing your account online you can view currently checked out items, which items are on hold, and any information regarding fines. In order to access your online account you can visit any of the BPL branches and sign up for an electronic username and password. This username and password will be your login information for your online account.

Stay tuned next week when we will cover how to request meeting room use and how to electronically request an item.
