Baldwin Library Books and Bites Tonight 6pm-9pm. Tickets $50. Available At The Door. Library Closes Today at 1 pm to Prepare For Gala Event.

Last year's Bites and Books at Baldwin was held on November 18th and was a sellout  This year the event was moved back to Tonight October 18th. Not everyone set their clocks back however so availability remains even though funds raised may exceed last year.  Tickets are are available at the door and the price is $50.00 per person. No one who comes to Books and Bites this evening will be turned away for lack of tickets to purchase.

Books and Bites is the library's chief fund raiser which last year raised money for the Youth Room . This year the money will go to the Teen Room.

Among the who's who in the City of Bloomfield Hills Bites and Books is a must attend event. Former Mayor  and Republican Candidate for State Representative passed on  possible Thursday Night Suite Tickets to the World Series in order to attend Books and Bites this evening.. City Commissioner  and  City Library Liaison  Pat Hardy and her husband  Tom are Bronze level sponsors of the event. It was a mere 17 months ago that Mayor McCready and Commissioner Hardy sat down with the negotiating team from Baldwin and began a dialogue which established full service library privileges for the City. Baldwin has an excellent relationship with all it's contract communities and two years remain of the City's contract. In fact one of the first City residents to sign up for a card did so at last year's Books and Bites. Also of note at last year's event was Larry Neal
 longtime City resident and library supporter.  Mr. Neal was later chosen  Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce Person of the Year 2011 for his efforts on mustering support for the library millage. Books and Bites host and Baldwin Library Director, Doug Koschik for similar reasons was chosen 2011 Man of the Year by this publication.
