There are some great things happening at the new Baker Family Learning Center in Muscoy. The BFLC in Muscoy is a center for community engagement and change. It opened its doors May 2013. The land, a donation from Neal T. Baker, a native of Muscoy and founder of the Inland Empire fast food chain Baker’s Drive-Thru, who wished to contribute to the education and betterment of his hometown. As part of the San Bernardino County Library System, the BFLC is one of the few city services offered to this unincorporated area; and one that is especially needed.

The BFLC touts a meeting room, computer lab, library, and a preschool. In conjunction with the County’s Headstart program, the BFLC also provides parent engagement classes through early learning programs and nutrition classes. The library is a beautiful and inviting facility with burgeoning programs. One such program, with over 300 children enrolled, is the Summer Reading Program, which thanks to the Baker family, offers reading incentives as small as yo-yos and as big as Disneyland. The computer classes offered to adults (offered in Spanish as well), have also really taken off.
