A millage that passed in Bath Township Tuesday will generate funding to expand the Bath Township Library Center into an official public library. The millage might have also saved the Library Center in general, Sue Garrity, president of Friends of Bath Township Library Center. “Because of a change in the leadership, there had been signals from the new township board of trustees that they were no longer going to fund a library at all,” Garrity said. “It was going to close at the end of December.”
Voters approved the millage by a vote of 835 – 590, according to unofficial results posted on Bath Township’s webpage. The Clinton County Clerk will likely certify the results within a week, according to the website.
