Town News

April is Poetry Month, and the library will be celebrating, during Open Hours, for the rest of the month, Mondays 4 - 7 p.m. & Tuesdays & Fridays 1:30 - 4 p.m!  All arriving at the library, old and young, with a Poem in Your Pocket, will be rewarded with a library theme pencil, and the volunteer librarian on duty is hoping to have a poem to read back to the guest.  Should be fun!  There are plenty of poetry books, for young people as well as adults, so everyone could find one on arrival if they forget to bring theirs.

At the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, they’re celebrating Poem in Your Pocket on Thursday, April 26, all day.  They suggest:  "On this day, select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, street corners, and anyone who will listen!“  Why not try it here and see what folks say!

On Friday, April 13th, the library will hold its twice a month Movie Night beginning at 6:30 p.m. with cider, water, and popcorn available.  The evening begins with the next installment of "All Creatures Great & Small,” and will be followed by “The Body in the Library,” which is delayed from April 6th, when the gathered group decided to watch a  mystery called “Look to the Lady.”  Quite exciting and mysterious indeed!  

By the time this is published, there will have been a program on April 11th about the digitization of historical materials led by Al Churchill. Hope to report on that next time.  

A good group of tea drinkers and tasty treat eaters and talkers gathered for first Monday Tea at the library the day after Easter.  Next month we will be adding juice.

There was some disappointment at the library following the Dennysville Town Meeting that a request for funds for much-needed maintenance, including safety and deterioration issues didn’t make it onto the warrant list.  There are hopes for it to be included in the later meeting to be held to vote, particularly on the school budget, along with other matters still to be dealt with for the year.
