BCLS Mission Statement
"Our libraries are cultural hubs that transform our community by providing vital opportunities connecting people, ideas, and information."
Including all four branches, more than 25,000 people walk through our doors each month for programs, computer use, meetings, research and entertainment.
The Friends of the Bay County Library System is a great volunteer organization made up of community members who are passionate about their libraries. The group's primary purpose is to raise money for library activities, act as library ambassadors in the community, and assist with millage campaigns. Please visit the Friends page for more information and how to join.
The library is funded primarily through a county wide millage. Some funds also come from state aid, penal fines, and donations.
