The Administration department of the Bloomfield Township Public Library ensures the smooth operation of the entire library - from hiring new employees to paying the bills. Administration staff welcomes everyone who comes in to the Library or calls, reserves meeting rooms, coordinates volunteers and much more.
Can Do is our motto. We can help you find a book or movie. We can help with your homework. We can help you find a business or a job. We can help navigate through the vast resources in the library and the electronic world beyond. You can come to us.
The experienced library professionals in Adult Services also select, order, and manage the books, movies, music, games, magazines and business resources, and electronic resources you find in Adult Services. We produce programs for your enjoyment and enlightenment and teach classes on using the internet. Ask us and see what we can do for you.
