The Butler County Library Outreach program is located at the Bradford Memorial Library. The Outreach staff travels regularly to various locations, maintaining a rotating collection of items from which residents can choose at their convenience. Specific requests are filled when possible either from the Outreach collection, the Bradford Memorial Library's collection, or through Interlibrary Loan.

Materials Provided
