Summer Reading Results

With labor day just around the corner it’s time to say goodbye to our “Every Hero has a Story” summer reading program. Thank you to everyone who participated. We had 92 sign ups this year, and the kids collectively read 1025 books over the summer months. This was out best summer reading year yet, and we’d love to hear feedback from you on ways that it worked, and ways we could improve.

If you have any thoughts on summer reading itself (including reading logs and prizes) feel free to contact the librarian. We’re also looking for feedback on the programs that were part of summer reading (the kick off party, weekly children’s hour, and Chewonki). You can contact the librarian through email-

Congratulations to our wonderful young readers here in Readfield!

08/24/15- Chewonki Presents Hero Adaptations

On August 24th, the Chewonki foundation makes its triumphant return. Come and meet three live animals, and learn how these “heroic” creatures survive in the wild. The program will begin at 6PM and run for about an hour. The Chewonki program has been known to be one of our most popular events, so the program will be held in the park behind the library. Our supply of chairs has come up short in previous years, so if you would like a guaranteed seat, its suggested you show up early or bring a lawn chair. If it rains, an alternative location has been set up at the Readfield Elementary School.

This is an all ages event, so make sure to bring the whole family!
