What’s New at BML

Youth Services Closed

Due to clean up for an unfortunate water issue our Youth Services department is still closed. All Discovery Story Times will continue as scheduled but will be located in the Schneider Room upstairs. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to reopen the Children’s area!

Ways to give this holiday season:

Youth Services “Fur” Tree
The Youth Services Department is holding a donation drive for the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.  Come visit us to choose a tag off our “Fur” Tree to donate to a furry friend in need.  Take your tag shopping with you and bring back a suggested item for your chosen animal.

Slinky the ferret, the new Humane Education animal at ARLGP, will be picking up all the donations on January 11th when he is visiting the library for a special Preschool program.

Giving Tree
Baxter Memorial Library is once again welcoming your donations for our annual Giving Tree. You may bring in new unwrapped gifts for teens and “tweens” (ages 10-18) through Monday, December 17th.

All gifts collected under the Giving Tree will be distributed to Gorham families in need. Donations may be dropped off during regular library hours.

Appropriate gifts might include movie passes, gloves and hats, scarves, board/card games, or toiletries.

New 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.
