Baldwin Library Board Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month and are open to the public. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.


The Board provides library policies and raises funds which enable the library staff to provide Baldwin Borough residents with a library that enriches lives with entertaining books, DVD’s, music CD’s, and more.

BBPL inspires and teaches with educational programs and trips. Your library helps children learn and grow with storytimes, Drama Club, an annual Battle of the Books, and music lessons.

If helping to make your community a better place appeals to you, consider joining the Board.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

High School Community Service Programexample thumbnail

High School Seniors needing community service are invited to complete their graduation requirement at the library. We offer opportunities based on the students schedule.

We have two hour shifts each weekday afternoon for 10 days or until the time requirement is filled. These students shelve books, clean shelves, and assist the librarians with preparation for programs. Also available are Saturday morning shifts for those involved in afterschool activities.

For students wanting to complete their hours in fewer sessions, we will have special projects through out the year. For instance, our Election Day Book and Bake sale provides opportunities for students to get as many as 5 hours by helping set up the books for the sale and another 5 for helping clean up the following Saturday.

Plan ahead. Contact Jenny [worleyj@einetwork.net] at 412-885-2255 to register for a Community Service plan.
