See Us at the Movies?

Welcome to the Bartholomew County Public Library's website!

The best place to start is up at the top of the page- Resources.  This will showcase all of the digital offerings we have available to you accessible from any computer or mobile device with just your library card.  If you are a Bartholomew County resident and don't have a library card, just stop by our main library in downtown Columbus, our Hope branch on the square in Hope, or our Bookmobile.  We will just need a photo ID to get started.  

Some highlights of our offerings:

If you need help with any of these programs or services we are always here to help.  You can contact us by phone or email.  We also welcome you to stop by at anytime.  We can usually help you with your needs immediately at the desk or if not, we can set up a Book-a-Librarian for a longer session.  

We also have help guides and videos to help get you started!
