History

The Baker Park branch was originally located on Bristol Road in the fire hall. The branch moved to its current location in 1979 and is located in the same building as the Burton Senior Center. Baker Park was named for the park that was on the property that the library and senior center occupy. The branch was renovated with paint and carpet in 2002. The facade was revamped in 2016.

Some of the branch librarians were Odile Aagesen, Karen Upham, Roy Soncrant and Bob Gorney.

One of the most unusual aspects of the Baker Park branch is that it used to have rabbits and parakeets available for check out. In addition, the parakeets had eggs that were hatched.

The Baker Park branch is also the pilot program for a "bookstore" style layout, which means that the different book genres are all together. A patron can go to the different sections to find additional authors in the genre they prefer.
