Tour the Building

Want to learn some Baldwin history and see our architecture up close? Use our map to take a self-guided tour of our 40,000-square-foot facility anytime. Our first building was built in 1927, the Youth Room followed in 1960 and the Adult Services wing was added in 1981. We recently renovated our Adult Services area, making this an ideal time to compare changes through the decades.

As you’re touring the building, be sure to check out architectural details like the newly exposed brick in our entryway. Visit our innovative and inspiring Idea Lab. And don’t forget to peruse all of our books and media. While you’re visiting, feel free to ask a member of our staff any additional questions — we love talking about our Library.
