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.

Thanks to All

bounce house

Did you catch it? A free bounce house, fresh farm food, face painting, a peacock (hi, Milou!), a teacup auction, cupcake decorating, a huge used book sale, and Jolene's debut. The Friends of the Bakerville Library raised about $1700 for the library.




It was an elite crowd that enjoyed the fun on June 7th.

Nope. They're soap.
