Welcome to the Eaton Rapids Area District Library

At the August Library Board Meeting it was decided that anyone over the age of 2 entering the Library would once again need to wear a mask based on the information coming out of the Barry-Eaton Health Department.

Covid Mask Picture

Saturday Hours are Back!

Starting Saturday September 11, 2021 we will once again be open on Saturdays from 10 am – 3 pm.

New Catalog

On Tuesday, September 14, 2021 the Library closed to implement our new and improved catalog system. The “Browse our Catalog” link is back in the menu and will now direct you to the new system. In the upcoming weeks we will be posting helpful videos on how to use this new system on our social media pages and our YouTube channel. However, please feel free to click the link and take a look for yourself.

To login you will use your Library Card number and userpass as the password. If you had reset your password in our previous system it has likely been reverted back to userpass and will require you to change it again.

Local & Historic Resources

Have you checked out our Local and Historic Resources? You can find the link under the Resources menu. We have Yearbooks, Newspaper clippings and much of our Microfilm Library digitized and available from the website.

If you have any questions or problems with the resources in this section, please do not hesitate to contact the Library.

Online Library Card Application

You can now sign up for an Eaton Rapids Area District Library card online! Follow the link here to be taken to our online form. 

There is still a manual piece to the process, so please allow up to 1 week before trying to use your new card. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the library or use our contact form on the website.
