Baxter Library news and events

GORHAM – Baxter Memorial Library on South Street is slowly returning to normal activities as pandemic restrictions are lifted.

Saturday hours resumed at the end of May, and it is now okay to browse, study, or use library computers without strict time limits because the building may safely contain more people.

While visiting the Youth Services Department, masks are required of children ages 5-12 and requested of all others.

For those who are not vaccinated, masks are recommended inside the building, especially for close contact. Staff will wear masks to assist visitors when distancing is not possible.
