Veterans Day

Just a reminder that the library will be closed this Saturday, November 11, in honor of Veterans Day.  We are open today (Thursday, Nov. 9) until noon, and our usual hours next week.  If you’re looking for something to do this Saturday (since you can’t come to the library!), there will be a special Veterans Day event in Readfield from 10 a.m. to noon.  The Third Maine Civil War Re-Enactors will be featured.  Meet at 10 a.m. at the Readfield Corner Cemetery on Church Road; lunch will follow at Gile Hall.  Call 441-9184 for more information.

A Note From Your Librarian

Hello Readfield Community Library Patrons,

As you may be aware, I will no longer be working at the Readfield Community Library starting the week of October 30th. Before I go, I just wanted to thank you all for being so supportive to me over the past seven years. Being your librarian has been the best job that I have ever had, and so much of that is due to the warmth and kindness expressed to me by the people of Readfield.  I know that I will always look back on my time here with fondness, and miss each and every one of you.

Myself, the library board, our volunteers, the town, and the interim librarian are all currently working hard to make sure that the transition goes over as smoothly as possible. Please keep an eye out for another update about what you can expect from the library in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to shoot me an email at My last day will be Thursday, the 26th for anyone who would like to stop by.

Thank you again!
