The Library is hosting an incentive-based summer reading program for kids! Children ages 2 - 14 will have the opportunity to earn prizes/rewards for time spent reading, either by oneself or with an older reader. Prizes include coupons for free ice cream cones at Madelyn's Drive-In, along with a large assortment of non-food prizes. Sign-ups began on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14th, and will continue through to mid-August at the Library. This program is a great way to earn rewards for time spent reading during the summer. For more information, come in to the Library, or contact us at (207)348-2899 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do NOT leave book or movie donations on the Library's doorstep! ANY & ALL donations must have prior approval from the Library Director. While we appreciate the generosity of patrons and citizens in wanting to donate items to the Library, we simply have NO space to store them. Also, when things are left outside the door when the Library is closed, they have a tendency to get ruined by rain and dampness. At that point, a donation becomes a liability, because we then have to find someone to transport the items to the dump. This is NOT a kind thing to do to your local Library! Thank you for your compliance with this request!
