Bath Library Named Three-Star Library!

We are so thrilled to have the honor of being chosen as a 2018 Three-Star library by the Library Journal! Only two New Hampshire libraries were chosen, the other New Hampshire library is Lincoln Public Library.

To understand the great scope of this achievement for our little community library; there are over 7300 libraries nationwide - with 257 libraries given the rating of 3, 4 or 5 stars. Here is the map provided by the Library Journal. 

What an accomplishment!
