The Baldwin Boettcher Branch library was opened in 1986. The Library shares its site with the Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. The branch was named for Baldwin Boettcher, whose family donated the land upon which the branch stands. Mr. Boettcher was a prominent German settler in the Westfield/Spring area in the late 1800's.
