As we embark on yet another election year, it's instructive to look back at the 19th century, when American presidential campaigns were very different from today. Back then, candidates barely participated, and some never even left home. Instead, the parties presented the candidates through agents and advertising. It worked: voter turnout was far higher than it is today. Come hear Bruce Zellers, history teacher at Greenhills School and special lecturer at Oakland University, give a lively presentation on this topic.

Proposed Adult Services Renovation

The Baldwin Public Library Board of Directors and staff have been working with architects at Luckenbach|Ziegelman|Gardner (link is external)  and library consultant Aaron Cohen to create a proposal to update the Adult Services area at the Library.

This plan will bring much needed improvements to the Adult Services area:

  • Efficiency of building
  • Infrastructure update
  • Circulation and wayfinding
  • Access for families
  • Increase study & collaboration spaces
  • Respect integrity of 1980 Birkerts Addition
  • Honor and elevate beautiful historic 1927 building
  • Bring in more light to create an inviting atmosphere
  • Improve acoustics

Our meeting rooms provide a professional atmosphere for business meetings, seminars and many other community and/or educational events. The rooms are available for rent to the public with reasonable fees for groups.

Library Board members are responsible for controlling the expenditures of all funds credited to the Library, adopting an annual budget for the Library, appointing a library director and setting policies regarding the use of the Library.
