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 Marketplace and Used Book Sale, August 2012

Thanks to everyone who helped us raise almost $4300.

Buddy the goat

This was Buddy’s first year at the Marketplace; he’s a friendlier size than his predecessor, Frisky.

Special thanks to Earl Phillips and the Eureka Grange for the use of their tent; to Albreada Refuse and Sweeping for their donation of the dumpster for the week; to Pastor Wes and the Bakerville Methodist Church for the use of their building and tables; and to Electric Motion for the use of their tables.


Thanks to all our volunteers, who set up, cleaned up, sat in the sun, smiled, hauled boxes and tables and tents, sweated, baked, put up posters and signs, posted on Facebook, counted money, sold tickets, mowed, made phone calls, kept track, and kept smiling.
