Annual giving is the backbone of any non-profit institution. For the Library, these funds are essential to ensuring we remain a vital part of our community. It is through your generosity that exceptional library materials, services and programs can be offered throughout the year. Our current fiscal-year is coming to a close on June 30. Please help us reach our goal of $52,500.
Donate On-Line using PayPal, a secure website to make Annual Fund or other contributions with a credit card.
School’s almost out and there’s a summer ahead full of possibilities and new discoveries waiting ahead. We know there’s a lot you’d like to do over the summer, so we’re making it easy to keep up with the Teen Summer Reading Program this year! For starters, this year you can join and participate with summer reading entirely online! No more worrying if you have to travel or work during the summer, not if you can find a few minutes here and there to keep on reading! There’s no booklet or anything like that this year, but we have several Teen Summer Reading Bookmarks that will help you to keep track of how many books you’ve read.
We’ll have an online form for you to fill out available starting June 15th, and you’ll be able to pick up bookmarks at the library, or download them from us and print them out at home. Keep track of what you read over the summer, and then email the list to us, or drop your bookmarks off at the library at the end of the summer and win prizes! You can read anything you like to participate, and joining book clubs and reading programs always looks good on a college application!
Keep watching here, there will be lots more Summer Reading goodies soon.
The 2nd Wednesday Book Group will meet on May 8th at 1pm here in the library to discuss Nikolai Gogol’s The Overcoat. Newcomers welcome! Check the book group blog for more information.
Monica Wood delivered a wonderful talk to a sold-out crowd on Monday, April 22 at the Falmouth Sea Grill. It could not have been a better night. The food was wonderful. The mingling was great. The speaker, of course, was fantastic. Thank you Monica Wood for making our evening such a success.
Thank you also to the Falmouth Sea Grill, Allagash Brewing Company, Big Claw Wines and Cork & Barrel for their support of this event.
Our children’s staff will be away on Thursday, April 11, and will be unable to lead our regular Storytime and Sing-along sessions. We welcome any parents who would still like to come and to share stories or songs with the group during usual times, and this could be an excellent chance to turn a story time into a reading party for all our little readers. We hope that you make the most of it and have fun!

Drop in anytime from 10-2 to take part or to find out what it’s all about!
