$5 per bag book sale for the month of September

Many donations have come in over the summer, so the Friends are holding a $5 per bag book sale for the month of September!  Stock up for winter reading -- there are a ton of great reads to choose from.  $5 per plastic grocery bag of books; please try to bring your own bags.  The library will have some grocery bags available at the start of the sale, but will probably run out fast. Please make sure to bag your items in the plastic grocery bags before placing them in boxes or other types of bags so that the library's desk staff can finalize your purchase quickly and efficiently.  Questions? Email info@bakerfreelib.org.

Book Donations No Longer Accepted Outside of Monthly Donation Day

Due to a prolonged and serious misuse of the book bin outside of the library, starting immediately we will no longer accept book donations outside of the Friend's Monthly Donation Day. This was not an easy decision to make, and unfortunately we just can't be the book recycling bin for the community if people do not adhere to the parameters set by the Friends. The donation bin purpose was to collect gently used, clean, saleable books for the Friends book sale. Instead, the majority of donations over the past two months have been old, moldy, and in a condition that no one would pay money for. If you have books that are appropriate for the Friends book sale, please visit their next donation day on Saturday 9/29 from 10 am to 2 pm here at the library. Otherwise, your book donations should go to any of the following entities: Bow Mills United Methodist Church (bin in parking lot); Salvation Army; Goodwill. Please do not leave boxes of books outside of our entrance. We simply cannot handle the recycling volume and the staff time to deal with disposing of materials that we cannot use in any way. For now, the Friends book sale will continue to be open every day that the library is open. Thank you in advance for respecting our decision and perspective.
