About the Branch

Programs on history, writing, art appreciation, health and wellness, and more make the Fairlawn-Bath Branch Library a hub of enrichment for a community of diverse learners. From home-schooling families to active seniors to weekend do-it-yourselfers, even our youngest customers find much to engage with in literacy programming that ranges from storytime to Paws for Reading, a read-aloud program for children and library doggie pals, and in opportunities to explore art.

Book, movie, and music collections at the library are equally responsive to the tastes and interests of readers, viewers, and listeners throughout this vibrant community; the Fairlawn-Bath Branch Library is a place to find computers and computer classes, WiFi, copying, scanning and faxing and a place for local non-profit groups to meet throughout the year. Also, be sure to look for Fairlawn-Bath Branch Library staff in your local schools, at community events, and around the table in community organizations—we'll see you there and in the library soon.
