Another beautiful Maine summer is upon us. A great time to check out our Maine State Park Pass from the library and take your family on a little nature trip! The pass can be checked out for three days (pick up the day before your trip, return it the day after). It’s first-come first-serve, so ask at the desk and see if it’s in!
Speaking of outdoorsy things, June marked the installation of our little community garden! We have some vegetables and herbs planted, come check it out and learn a little more about gardening and the plants growing there. And if you’re just walking by, feel free to pluck some fresh herbs to put on your dinner or grab a tomato if one is ripe. We also have a lovely little bucket of herb packets at the front desk for people to snag!
For those who have been awaiting news of our book sales, we will be holding two this year. They will both be on Fridays, the first on July 15th from 1pm-6pm and the second on August 12th from 12pm-5pm. We are hoping to also have library book bags to sell while there, so you can buy a bag and fill it up with books! We will be accepting book donations the week or so before the book sale, so keep your eyes on our social media for specific announcements about that. After the book sales we are also planning on doing some upcycling book art activities with leftover books, so be on the lookout for those too, they are sure to be fun. And, of course, we hope to see you all at Summer Fest!
