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.

It's Raffle Time Again

Ruby's tickets are sold out! Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket (or tickets) and everyone who helped us sell tickets.

This coming Saturday evening, we will find out who wins Ruby!



On September 30, 2017, the Friends of the Bakerville Library will raffle off a 2017 Dodge Challenger R/T, in Octane Red, nicknamed Ruby.

Some of Ruby's specs:

5.7-Liter V8 HEMI® MDS VVT Engine

TorqueFlite® 8-Speed Automatic Transmission

20" Forged Aluminum Wheels

Heated Front Seats, Heated Steering Wheel


Follow Ruby on Facebook.

We have printed only 550 tickets. They are $100 each. You may buy tickets, beginning June 1st, at the library during open hours, or from any Friend of the Bakerville Library. For more information, please call 860-307-3243.


All proceeds will benefit the Bakerville Library. Past raffles have gone to purchase and begin renovation on the Bakerville Library Annex, the building next door to the library, which we plan to develop into a fully functioning community center.
