Technology Roundup

Since this is the last NEFLIN newsletter of 2014 we thought a look back at the weekly Tech-Talk tips would be a good idea. Both as a reminder that you can search the Tech-Talk archives for past tips and highlighting some tips that were especially useful.

Call Your Friends & Wake Your Neighbors

Emily Taber Public Library
April Teel, Director

The building that houses the Emily Taber Public Library is one of the cherished historical sites in Baker County. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.


Built in 1908, it served as the Baker County courthouse until 1945; in later years it was used for the Baker County Health Department.


In 1961, Emily Taber started the library with 600 donated books and a budget of $25 at the St. James Episcopal church. 

In 1970, the Baker County Public Library was established in the building. In 2001, the building was named for Peg McCollum in honor of her outstanding efforts in renovating and preserving the fine old building.


Today, the Emily Taber Public Library offers services and resources to enhance the quality of life in our community and assists in preparing our youth for a brighter future.


Libraries ut vivat in aeternum. (May libraries live forever.)
