May Book Group

We plan to get back to our monthly Book Groups! Our May Book Group has been scheduled as a Zoom Meeting, and we are hoping for an in-person Book Group in June! We will meet virtually on Wednesday, May 27 at 6:30pm. Please call or email the library for the Zoom Meeting login ID.

The book to be discussed will be an eBook from the “Always Available and Unlimited Usage Indie Author Project Collection” in Cloud Library—Still Breathing by E.A. Fournier. Since we still do not have access to InterLibrary Loans for this month, we decided to choose a title that everyone could have access to for free through our Cloud Library.

National Library Week

Unfortunately, for National Library Week last week, the library was still closed due to Covid-19 concerns. However, we hope you were able to “Find the Library at Your Place” through Cloud Library borrowing, Digital Maine Library use, our Thursday Zoom story time, or by simply enjoying some books in your “home library.”

Please take a moment to think about what the Readfield Community Library, and libraries in general, mean to you. To help share “library love,” if you use Facebook, please consider writing a brief Facebook REVIEW of the Readfield Community Library.
