Volunteering & Donations


Are you a detail-oriented person who would be willing and able to volunteer some of your time to help out the library?  If so, we’d love to hear from you!  

Whether you can help out for an hour a week or an hour a year, we are always in need of helping hands — and we rely on our volunteers to help us keep our shelves organized and things running smoothly!  

If you’re interested please call Rebecca at 684-2116 or email baldwinlibrary@ifls.lib.wi.us.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Register at the library and get your tracking sheets.

Read to your baby or toddler.

It’s never too early to start a child's love for books.

Read 3 books a day for 1 year = 1095.

After every 100 sheet is filled, bring it to the library and a balloon with your child’s name will go up on our blue sky chart.

At the end, your child will get their photo taken for the newspaper and website, a certificate of accomplishment, and a free book!
