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 2011

Thanks for coming.

A nice crowd came to the Bakerville Holiday Festival on December 2nd and enjoyed good weather, a hot fire, delicious refreshments, a cheery visit with Mrs. Claus, the season's best music with Anne DeMichiel, and friendly competition over this year’s silent auction offerings.

We raised over $2600 for the library.

What did you win?


Thanks to the library’s Board of Directors for managing the bonfire, tree lighting, carol singing, and refreshments.


Thanks to Anne DeMichiel (and her assistant!) for handling the carols by the tree and the music in the old firehouse with Mrs. Claus.

Mrs. Claus

Thanks to Mrs. Claus for visiting again.


Thanks to the Friends of the Bakerville Library for organizing and facilitatig the craft, setting up Mrs. Claus's space, and doing all the work associated with the silent auction,


and baking cookies.

Thanks to Pastor Wes at the Bakerville Methodist Church for allowing the library to use the old firehouse.

As always, thanks to everyone who participated—singing, bidding, crafting, baking, setting up, cleaning up, publicizing, planning, and donating.

Speaking of which, here is a list (still in development) of donors to this event. Please thank the individuals when you see them, and patronize the businesses.
