Give Books
Donations are always welcome. We will accept gently used books, magazines and DVDs. We will no longer accept VCR tapes or books on cassette. The library director will decide which books will go on our shelves and which ones we do not need in our collection. Books not added to our collection will either be sold, donated or discarded.

Planning for Results

We are hosting a meeting of community members to help the board of trustees make long range plans for our library.

The Baxter Community Library Board of Trustees is hosting a meeting on October 4th at 6:00 to gather ideas to use in setting our long range goals.  We are looking for people who use the library and those who don't.  We will serve a meal and have a presentation by Mariann Mori our district consultant.  We are looking forward to hearing what people in Baxter would like in our library.  If you would be willing to help us out contact Marie at 641-521-0982 or
