Friends of BML


Dear Patrons,

It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Friends of Baxter Memorial Library. Together, we can make our library an even more wonderful community resource.

Membership fees, along with two annual book sales, provide the funds we use to support the library in many ways, from purchasing books and computers to hosting guest authors.

The Friends Board of Directors meets monthly and your input is always welcome; however, as a Friend, you do not need to attend meetings!

If you are interested in volunteering for special events, just let us know. We are always grateful for the help. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the email address below.


Diane Caswell
President, Friends of Baxter Memorial Library
