• Library Board of Trustees Monthly Meeting

    Next meeting on Wed 1/11/17

    The Baker Free Library Board of Trustees meets the second Wednesday every month except July or when scheduling conflicts arise.

    The next regular monthly meeting of the Library Trustees will be held Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 5:15 p.m. in the Library's Meeting Room. Members of the public are welcome to attend and listen to any meeting.  For more information call Lori Fisher, Library Director, at 224-7113 or email lori@bakerfreelib.org.

  • Are you going out of town?

    If you're concerned about not being available to pick up your reserved items, you can defer your reserves until you get back. Log in to your account to manage your reserved items or call the library at 224-7113.

    The Library will be CLOSED on Monday, 1/16 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day .  We will re-open for our regular hours at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, 1/17. 

    Please remember that our book drop and CD/DVD drop are available 24/7, and that items may be renewed and reserved online through our catalog, using your library card number and the phone number associated with your account.
  • Credit Cards accepted at the Circulation Desk!

    We now have the capability to accept all four major credit cards at the Circulation Desk.  You can use a credit card to pay for lost materials, DVD fines, faxes, copies, out-of-town library card annual fees, or donations to the Library.  The minimum charge is $5, if you have to pay something to us totaling under $5, you will still need to pay by cash or check. 
    We hope offering this service makes your life easier!  Questions?  Contact Lori Fisher, Library Director, at lori@bakerfreelib.org

    You've asked and we are delivering!  Given the recent Library Survey results and comments, all DVDs will now have a two week lending period.  The one thing that will stay the same is the limit to two DVDs per library card.  We ask that all patrons who borrow DVDs think courteously given the new lending period....if you are done watching a DVD, particularly if it is only one disk and is a new or popular movie, please return it prior to your due date if you are finished.  This will help shorten the extended wait times we'll now see with the longer lending period.  Questions? Email Lori Fisher, at lori@bakerfreelib.org


We're almost done!  Here's what's impacted by our Lower Level Renovations:

The Friends Book Sale is currently limited to the cart in the Community Info area at the front of our building.
However, Book Donation Saturdays (the 4th Saturday of each month) will continue until the new space is ready to use. Be prepared that the Friends will be able to accept only higher quality used books during this time.
Reservations for all Lower Level Spaces will open on March 1st.  Until then, the Upstairs Meeting Room is still available - please check the Library Calendar to check specific date/time availability.
Parking will be at a premium until the Renovation is completed.  Please remember to use the back of the NHADA parking lot (to the right of the playground) during the daytime, and the Bovie parking lot after 5 p.m.

Thank you in advance for your patience during this major transition - and we are all very excited about the new spaces we'll have to offer Bow residents!  Questions?  Email info@bakerfreelib.org or call 224-7113.
