Thanks to Bakerville Library Board members Kim Ciccarello, Kathy Kinane, Elaine Carmelich, Mary C. (Tina) Demo, Barbara Goff, Dianne Litchfield, Brian Thiem, and Neal Yates for staffing the library table, keeping an eye on parking and road safety, helping sort books, haul books, set up and take down tents, staff the auction, and clean up.
