Past Board Members of Bainbridge Public Library

As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration for the Bainbridge Public Library (BPL), we compiled a list of people from the community who have served on the BPL's Board of Directors. They all gave generously of their time, talents, and energy. The list was compiled by Lona Gartrell, a volunteer at the library, by many hours spent examining BPL's files and Board meeting minutes. There are certainly omissions and errors as the records were not complete. Please help to make this a more accurate list by contacting us at with your input. It will be greatly appreciated. Click on a decade below to directly jump to the years in that time frame.
