A Word

From Our Director

At the Bailey Library we are committed to keeping our members informed, engaged, and entertained. This commitment extends beyond our physical walls; our librarians are available to help meet your information and cultural needs. We are social beings, and we will remain that way throughout our temporary closure. If you want to schedule a phone call with a librarian, please email: nperry@baileylibrary.org. We will be utilizing Facebook video to offer story times, readers’ and viewers’ advisory, and up-to-date information about our services. We will also be using Zoom to offer virtual programming. If your library card has expired, or if you need a new library card, please email me at: rfortin@baileylibrary.org!
