2017 Town Candidate Information Packet

Candidates who filed for town elected offices for 2017 have provided information about their candidacy to the Library for inclusion in a 2017 Candidate Information Packet, which is linked here as a pdf.  You can also pick up a printed packet at the Library during our open hours, or at the Town Clerk's Office during their open hours.

SAVE THE DATE: Candidates Night will be held on Wednesday 3/1 at 6:30 pm in our new Merrimack County Savings Bank Meeting Room.  Each candidate will have 5 minutes to speak about their background and goals for the town, with a meet and greet with residents after all candidates have spoken.


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.
