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.

The Bakerville Marketplace 2013:

Thanks to everyone!


We had help from many new people this year. The Wolverines cheerleaders painted nails, applied temporary tattoos, and attracted attention.




Home Depot offered free wood crafting for kids, as well as cool orange aprons.

Chris Royer led a zumba demo. Aren’t you sorry you missed it?




New Hartford PTO and New Hartford Travel Soccer both helped by running refreshment booths.

And we had a bounce house! Thanks to the volunteers who manned it: Hank FitzGerald, Arnie Goldstein, Emily Korzynski, and Eli Roberts.





The Slate family ran their usual booth full of amazing handmade food and crafts, and brought the lovely Daisy the baby goat.

We also had (not too loud) music from Friends member Pat Smith.



Did you see all the baskets we had at the teacup auction?





We hope you got some of the good stuff. The auction raised over $2,000 for the library.

Thanks to all the Friends of the Bakerville Library, who organized the event, publicized it, hauled things around, collected donations, created auction baskets, set up the auction, and cleaned everything up.
