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.
