Proposed Youth Room Expansion & Renovation

All proceeds from Books & Bites 2017 and 2018 will benefit the upcoming expansion and renovation of the Youth Room.

Youth Room Expansion rendering

Our Youth Room is a bustling part of the Library. Each year Baldwin’s Youth Services department hosts over 570 programs for 21,000 guests.  Through programs, services, and an extensive collection of books, media, and toys, the Youth Department helps to jumpstart the literacy and early education of our youngest patrons.

  • Make the entire area ADA-compliant, including the book shelves and the bathrooms
  • Modernize and increase the capacity of the bathrooms
