April News & Events

On display this month in the main room of the library are the gorgeous decoupage boxes of library Friend and patron Davene Fahy, whose Custom Decoupage business supplies several galleries here on Maine's midcoast. Each box is unique, lined in suede or velvet, and decoupaged to reflect the beautiful environs of Maine. This is a must-see display and will be in place through the month of April.

The library will be celebrating Poetry Month in April with a Poet-Tree in our main room -- a tree whose leaves are poems. We'll also celebrate National Library Week, April 12th through April 18th, by offering something delicious to our patrons each day, because we appreciate you all very much!

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 December'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.
