Summer Reading Kickoff Party Postponed

Due to the severe thunderstorm watch this afternoon, we’ve decided to postpone our summer reading kickoff party- as it is an outdoor event. The party itself will now take place this Wednesday at 3PM.

We apologize for any confusion this may cause. Soggy ice cream sundaes just don’t have the same appeal!

If you’d like more information on the kickoff program, or any of our other summer programs, please check out the Events page.

Would you Like to Volunteer at the Library?

Are you looking for a place to volunteer this summer? The Readfield Community Library is currently looking for a few volunteers to help work at the desk. This involves checking books in and out, as well as shelving and other small projects. This is a perfect position for anyone who wants to be more involved in their community. Being comfortable with simple computer tasks is a requirement.
 
Anyone fourteen and older can apply to be a volunteer. What we’re really looking for is someone who is eighteen or older and is comfortable working at the desk alone for a span or 2-3 hours at a time.
