Baker County celebrates its sesquicentennial (150 years) this Saturday (September 24) with parades, music and displays. Here’s the schedule so far.
Visit the library 10-6pm to view art and historic displays. No library business on this day, just enjoy the displays.
What’s the most important card in your wallet?
Your library card, of course.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Get a library card, use it to check out books and DVDs. Use it to use our computers.
To celebrate libraries during this month, we have a special program planned: a fun event for the entire family–Science Mike.
He’ll be bringing and demonstrating his collection of science toys. You’ll see a 3D hologram, dancing robots, and optical illusions.

Libraries do receive donations from the public (not publishers) that may be added to the library collection. But library users want new books and need up to date information.
Libraries have budgets from local and state funding sources that are used to purchase new, up-to-date, reliable information in books and other materials.
Usually books that are donated by the public are sold and the money is used toward purchasing new books.
Not really. We spend very little time reading during the working day. Instead, we are busy selecting new books, getting them ready for you to check out and read, helping people find information, and helping people use computers.
Last year the libraries in the three counties checked out to library users over 256,000 items. Multiply that by all the libraries in Florida and you’ll see how much Floridians use their libraries.
