Harry Potter Book Night: The Triwizard Tournament

Thursday, February 6th, 6:00-7:30pm

We invite you to grab your wand and test your courage at our Triwizard Tournament, as we celebrate Baxter Memorial Library’s 4th annual Harry Potter Night!  Visit an underwater cave to retrieve a gift from a mermaid. Enter the Hungarian Horntail’s den and try your luck at stealing a dragon’s egg from its nest. Still standing? Navigate the hedge maze without getting lost forever!

Hogwart’s classrooms will be open downstairs for crafting a wand and making dragon necklaces. Study for your O.W.L.s next year by taking our Harry Potter trivia quiz.

Wizarding robes and outfits are encouraged!
Magical refreshments will be served.  This is an all ages event

Census Day! Will reschedule due to storm cancellation

Monday, December 2nd, 11:00-2:00pm

The Census is at peak hiring at this time. Meet with a representative from the US Census to discuss temporary and flexible jobs at $16 an hour and 58 cents a mile. Applying to be a census employee will help the community with an accurate census count!

Baxter Becomes a Family Place Library

FamilyPlaceLogoIf you haven’t been in the library lately, you should stop by for a visit.  We were recently designated as a national Family Place Library!  This means that the library demonstrates a strong commitment to being a community center for early literacy and learning, early childhood development, parent education, and community-based information.  To achieve these goals the library has reorganized the Youth Services floor, improved the dramatic play area, planned fun “Play-to-Learn” Workshops, and will be starting an evening Family Discovery Time for all ages.  We look forward to seeing your smiling faces!

Museum Passes Available at the Library

Looking for something fun to do? The library now has a reduced rate pass to the Maine Wildlife Park and a membership to the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine! These are in addition to our existing pass to the USM Southworth Planetarium.
