October News & Events

We're sad to see the Humane Society display go, but it's on to our Halloween display, on loan from a private collection, which will be in place through the month of October. Our films this month hint of Halloween too, with The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library featuring movies that are Out of This World in their Friday night film series, culminating in the spine-tingling thriller Diabolique on the very night of Halloween.

Please scroll down for the latest news and for information on upcoming events. Check the Catalog & ILL page for a list of our new materials and the Book Clubs page for the scoop on October's Intergenerational Book Club selection. The Mystery Book Club has now scheduled their featured mystery writers through October 2015 -- and they are looking for new members! -- so check out their next year's enticing roster on our Book Clubs page too.

Thomaston Author Chris Fahy's New Book

Gone from the Game

Is Garnering Great Reviews!

The year is 1928, and the Philadelphia Athletics are on the verge of supplanting the New York Yankees as the greatest baseball team the sport has ever known. How much easier their job would be if something catastrophic should befall the Yanks’ star player, Babe Ruth. Which it will, if Ruth’s former minor league roommate and nemesis, embittered, shell-shocked World War I veteran Nick Hudson—who sometimes hears voices and sees things that don’t exist—can execute his warped and devious plan.

You may view Mr. Fahy's fine review here.

Children's Book Review:
Mystery on Pine Lake by Tamra Wight Illustrator: Carl DiRocco

Mystery on Pine Lake is a fast-moving adventure story that takes place at a Maine lakeside campground. Two boys, Cooper and Packrat, develop an amusing friendship as they attempt to solve the mystery of the rising lake waters. On a Pine Lake island the loons’ nest with eggs is being threatened by the flood. This Maine author has created two very likable characters in a familiar setting of family camping. Her knowledge and love of nature is delightfully displayed throughout the experiences of Cooper, Packrat, and other campers. At the same time the illustrator brings the people and the birds to life in his charming drawings.

A second mystery about these two boys and their families and friends is also available at the library.
