For more than 180 years, the quaint home of the Bakerville Library has stood as both a touchstone of our common past and a threshold into the future we all share.
Come see for yourself.

Bakerville Holiday Festival, December 2009

As always, thanks.

Thank you

You helped the Friends of the Bakerville Library raise about $3000 at Bakerville Holiday Festival in December 2009, to help fund the ongoing work of the library.

If we do say so ourselves, the Friends did a stellar job of setting up Mrs. Claus’s space this year in the old firehouse next to the library.


Mrs. Claus

Anne Demichiel did her usual great job accompanying and singing with the kids. The light-up reindeer helped.

While they waited to sit with Mrs. Claus, kids stayed busy with crafts.
