Mysteries by Maine Authors; The Gritty Underbelly of Maine

The next meeting is August 26th with Maureen Milliken's Cold Hard News.

This five-book series plunges into the gritty underbelly of Maine as seen through the eyes of its talented mystery authors. Join us and our Maine Humanities Facilitator for discussions designed to discuss and explore the issues in Maine and the dark side of human nature.  This program has been funded by a generous grant from the Maine Humanities Council.

Knit Lits Are Back!

Book Sale!

Our Fundraising (I like to call it "Fun-raising) Committee has chosen a new annual weekend for our Books Sale.  This year it will be the weekend after Labor Day - Friday, September 17th and Saturday, September 18th.   Friday we will have the happy coincidence of being part of our Summer Concert Series so we hope that you come to shop for some books, back a lunch, and join us for the concert from 12-1 on Friday. 

 

Activities for Saturday's booksale are in the works!

Need Tech Help?

 

Call to schedule a technology help session with Lesley.  If you're having trouble with Zoom, email, or anything else, we're happy to help.  Should you require a little guided help, with your permission, I can log into your computer after I walk you through a short setup. 

 

Don't let Zoom-intimidation keep you from connecting with your loved ones!
