Do Bats Hibernate?

I was talking about this with my grandfather and he said that besides being nocturnal, some bat species are pack it in during the winter and hibernate.
I always knew bears can hibernate, it is the first time I hear bats can hibernate too.
Is it true?

Some bats, like the ones that live in temperate areas, hibernate.
Not all bats hibernate, those that do usually live at high latitudes where insect prey becomes scarce during cold months.
Other bats migrate to other areas.
