Lego2Calling all Lego enthusiasts!  If you like building with Lego blocks, you will love this NEW group for ages 7 and up that meets each Friday of the month, 3 to 4:30, from April 3rd through June 12th in the upstairs conference room. High school student and Lego pro, Tyler Field, will facilitate the group.  Just bring your own blocks and kits and let’s build together! For more information, contact the Mary Pinkham at the library, 633-3112, ext. 202.

 

Join us on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, 5:30-6:30 p.m., for a special series of programs on the state of farming and our food production system:  From Plot to Plate.  Session #1 will be a movie showing & discussion, “Growing Local,” with Ellen Sabina of the Maine Farmland Trust, to be held in the upstairs Conference Room.  

FarmerWhile “buying local” is on the rise, the stories in "Growing Local" make clear that small farms and access to locally produced food is not a sure thing.  In three short vignettes, we meet the young farm couple Ben and Taryn, who, on risky sweat-equity, have revitalized a famously fertile piece of farmland into a thriving community food hub. We meet artisanal butcher, Ben, who helps us better understand how healthier, thoughtful meat production can be supported and sustained, and we meet Richard and Adam, father/ son organic dairy farmers struggling to keep their family farm going. These poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement. Produced by Seedlight Pictures and Maine Farmland Trust.  Special guest, Ellen Sabina, with Maine Farmland Trust will discuss the film and answer questions. Register early for this event as seats are limited. Call  the library at 633-3112, or email Caroline at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Libraries are...

"Libraries are the mainstays of democracy. The first thing dictators do when taking over a country is close all the libraries, because libraries are full of ideas and differences of opinion, all the things we say we want in a free and open society. So keep 'em, fund 'em, embrace and cherish 'em".  Author David Baldacci (2014)
