Let Them Eat Facts
Did you know that eReference books are different from downloadable ebooks? You will want to know about this electronic collection!
For years we have relied on print reference resources to find information. Many of these resources are no longer available in print but are now accessible online. The eReference collection takes these resources off the shelf and makes them available to you at the click of a mouse 24/7. Not only can you access this collection at home (available to Bloomfield Township Public Library card holders) but you have the ability to search for information in ways you could not do with print resources.
Don’t miss out on reliable information available to you. Just visit the Library website at www.btpl.org. Click on Find it Online / eLibrary or click here to get started now.
