Endowment Fund Campaign & Giving Tree continues through 12/31!

The Baker Free Library Foundation launched their newly created Endowment Fund on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017, and raised over $3,400 that day!  Well on the way to reaching our goal of $10,000 for this end-of-year appeal, we could still use your support.   

This Fund was established to help ensure that the library meets new and diverse demands of our community throughout the 21st century. All contributions will be invested in a restricted endowment fund to support improvements and enhancements to library services. As with all endowments, the interest income, not the principle, will support these initiatives.  The Baker Free Library Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization registered with the IRS and the State of New Hampshire. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Contributions may be made by cash, check or online through the link below.
In addition, the Library also has its 10th annual Giving Tree available! We have tags for collections support, Summer Reading event support, the Friends of the Baker Free Library's Museum Pass program, as well as the Foundation endowment fund. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and donors of $50 or more will receive a letter of acknowledgment.

Thank you for your support of your community Library!
