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.

Better Late Than Never: Veronica's Debut

On October 24, 2020, the Friends of the Bakerville Library will raffle off a 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T, in black, nicknamed Veronica.

Some of  Veronica's specs:

5.7-Liter V8 HEMI® MDS VVT Engine

TorqueFlite® 8-Speed Automatic Transmission

Steering wheel mounted shift control.

“Shaker” package with Shakedown graphics.

8.4-inch touchscreen display.


Follow Veronica on Facebook.

We have printed only 550 tickets. They are $100 each. You may buy tickets at the library during open hours, or from any Friend of the Bakerville Library. For more information, please call 860-480-3270.

All proceeds will benefit the Bakerville Library.

With previous raffle ticket purchases, we have been able to buy the building next door to the Bakerville Library (the Community Center, formerly known as the Annex), begin renovations, and hold large events and regular activities for our patrons and the community.

We purchased this year's raffle car, Veronica, early in 2020 before the United States was hit with COVID-19. After meeting several times to decide whether we would run the raffle, we ultimately decided to take a chance because the library still needs your support.
