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 inter-library loan. Be sure to use the quick link to the World Book on the right side of the screen. Let the staff know you have used the link the next time you visit the library in person. We would liketo have your feedback.

Lego.sign.webLibrary Lego Club will be meeting on November 24th, December 8th, and December 29th from 4:00pm. to 5:00pm.  This activity is supervised by library staff and is for KIDS ages 7 and up.





The Seed Lending Library needs seeds to re-supply the library. If you would like to donate seed, you can bring them to the library or call the library to make other arrangements. We have three (3) seed screens for threshing crops and blossom bags that can be checked out.  This is open to everyone – kids to adults – and it’s FREE.


NExpress News

NExpress is a partnership of 45 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 1,000,000 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.
