Are you a strategist …….a future Bobby Fischer?

Why don’t you come to the Chess Club at Baldwin Boettcher Library? The chess aficionados meet on alternating Fridays at 4:30 pm. All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. This is an ongoing program for young adults but adult experience is much appreciated. If possible come with your young adult child and experience some excellent bonding time. Meeting dates for September and October 2009 are: 9/11, 9/25, 10/9 and 10/23.

Still Feel the Need to Purchase a Book?

Come browse the Friends of the Library book nook.  You will find gently used books for sale.  The prices are well worth the trip.  Paperbacks go for 25 to 50 cents, while hardback books sell for $1.00. 

Do you still have a VHS player at home? The Friends of the Baldwin Boettcher Library are selling donated VHS tapes for 50 cents to $1.00. 

So come into the library and purchase a book or movie from our Friends group to support our programming at the Baldwin Boettcher Library.

Hurricane Season Not Over Quite Yet…

In fact, we are only just now coming to the most likely period for hurricanes.

This informative program will be in the meeting room here at Baldwin Boettcher on Tuesday, September 8, at 5:00 PM, and will include a question and answer period. All are invited to attend.
