Welcome to the most friendly library

The Baldwin City Public Library has a great selection of books, magazines, multimedia (videos and DVDs too!) and programs for all ages with helpful staff to assist you. If we don’t have what you want, we can probably find it for you through interlibrary loan. Be sure to use the quick link to the World Book on the left side of the screen. Let the staff know you have used the link the next time you visit the library in person. We would like to have your feedback.

* * *If you are getting too many items delivered at once, please read “Make Your Own List” for help to correctly set the pace for your deliveries.

BALDWIN CITY SEED LENDING LIBRARY
The Seed Lending Library is now open at the Baldwin City Library. We have a wide variety of vegetables and flowers for you to grow, save the seeds and return the second generation seeds to the library. This is open to everyone – kids to adults – and it’s FREE.

Pardon our construction mess while we improve and expand Baldwin City Public Library for our great patrons. Please use the north door to enter the library and remember that we may have to close unexpectedly at times due to problems from the construction. We hope that will not happen frequently but we ask that you bear with us for the next several months. Thank you from the staff of BCPL.

The Friends have requested that the funds be used toward the new reading room that will be added as part of the library’s ongoing expansion construction.

NExpress News

NExpress is a partnership of 34 libraries in the Northeast Kansas Library System stretching from Atchison to Ottawa, from Silver Lake to Bonner Springs. On February 16, 2009, Baldwin City Library joined NExpress.

What does this mean for you? This means that no matter which one of these libraries you walk into you will have your pick from a collection of more than 500,000 library items!  The NExpress shared catalog is made possible by the open source software Koha ZOOM. This allows you to see a history of the items you have checked out, keep lists of your own searches and requests, and easily get materials from other NExpress libraries.
