Friends of the Library

In 1950, a group of like-minded individuals formed The Friends of the Library. This non-profit’s purpose is the same now as it was then: to support the Library’s standards, goals and vision by creating enjoyable programs and opportunities for all Baldwin patrons. If you have a similar passion, consider joining the Friends. Membership is open to all, and paid dues go directly back to the Library. Join Us!
