On September 19th, the library hits the road and visits Senior Cafe. Stop by at the Maranacook Community Middle School at 9AM to learn all about the changing world of libraries and how all libraries (including ours!) are still relevant in 2016.

New books include works by Carl Hiassen, Debbie Macomber, Ann Patchett, Colson Whitehead, Alan Bradley, Harlan Coben, Janet Evanovich, Kate DiCamillo, and Raina Telgemeier, New movies include Captain America: Civil War, Central Intelligence, and Me Before You. Check out the full list here.
The next time you visit the Readfield Community Library, you might notice that some of our shelves look a little unusual. Some sections may even appear to be in the wrong part of the library! That is because we are currently midway through a project that involves shifting around some of our books. This project will hopefully create a more logical flow all around, and allow developing collections (like our teen section, and junior graphic novel section) a chance to grow. We’re very excited about the new organization of our little library, but understand that it may confusing to some of our longtime patrons. If you can’t find your favorite book (or favorite section of the library), feel free to ask is where it us!
The next time you’re in, why not check out the Caregiver’s Shelf? Most of these books were generously donated by AARP, and are wonderful resources on caregiving and aging. Thank you to the Readfield Age Friendly Committee for making these new additions to our collection possible! See a book you like? Just email the librarian and we can hold it for you or add you onto the waiting list. The email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

School is just around the corner, which means that our summer reading program is coming to an end. Here are a few things that you might want to know.

Monday, August 29th, Chewonki will be returning for their animal fitness program, which includes three LIVE ANIMALS. The program begins at 6PM and is expected to run for 1 hour. This is one of our more popular programs, so if you want a guaranteed seat, it’s best to come early, or bring a lawn chair of your own. This will be an outdoor program, a rain location has been set for the Readfield Elementary School.
Have any reading logs hanging around? You’ll be able to turn them in for one more week. The prize shelf will be up until September 1st. After that, it will be taken down to make room for an exciting new display. So far, our readers this summer have read 728 books! Congrats to them for making it this far!
