The Berrien County Broadband taskforce

>> Take the Survey <<

Now, more than ever, broadband Internet is an essential and crucial service to those who live, learn and work in Berrien County. In some areas of Berrien, high-speed Internet is not available. In order to bridge this digital divide, the Berrien County Broadband Internet Task Force needs to gain a better picture of which properties do not have Internet access in our area. For this, we need your help!   Please fill out the survey, even if you use the library for internet access.

What you should know about returning books:

  • All items should be returned to our outdoor dropbox, located on the corner of the alley to the east and Market Street, or one of our interior book drops

    All items are being quarantined for at least 24 hours upon return before being checked out to anyone else.     

  • The items will be removed from your account at that time. 
  •  Because we are quarantining items for a more than adequate amount of time and are taking every precaution, we ask that you do not use cleaning products on the materials.  Many products may damage the items.
