New Things in Store

The Baldwin Boettcher Library has been making many changes over the last year to create an environment that is pleasant, organized, and technologically friendly.  The latest change we are making is we will no longer offer Family Storytime on Wednesday evenings.  Instead we will be providing a more diverse array of programs for the whole community to enjoy.  Such as more food programs and art classes that the public has shown a great interest in.  Don't worry folks we still have our other story times available for the kids to enjoy.  Lapsit Storytime on Tuesdays at 10 am, Toddler Storytime on Thursdays at 10:30 am, and Preschool Storytime on Tuesdays at 11 am.  So come back to see and experience what is new at Baldwin Boettcher Library!

School's Back in Session
