The Baker Free Library offers weekly, monthly, and seasonal programs for children of all ages and their families. For those events requiring registration, visit our online calendar to sign up, or call the library at (603) 224-7113. Some of our most popular programs, including storytimes, require registration with a valid library card.
 

Spring Storytimes Begin March 18!
Registration for spring storytimes is now open! Spring storytimes run from March 18 to May 10. We will continue to offer three weekly storytimes, with content designed for all age groups. Please note that Wednesday's baby storytime has been moved to Monday mornings, and will take the form of a Stay & Play, with plenty of open play time for babies and caregivers to socialize using the library's collection of toys and manipulatives.



To register, sign up on our online calendar using a valid Baker Free Library card. You do not need to register every week; your registration will carry forward after the first time.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten!
Ready Your Child for a Lifetime of Reading
Research suggests that children need to hear about 1,000 books before they begin to read independently. Reading to children increases their vocabulary and improves comprehension, listening and narrative skills, as well as building traits like self-awareness, confidence, and empathy. Prepare your child for a lifetime of reading by sharing books together! Sign your child up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at the Baker Free Library, and earn prizes for every 100 books you share together. This program is ongoing; register anytime.
