These extended hours will continue until the end of August.
As part of summer reading, the library will be starting a Children’s Hour program. Children’s Hour includes storytimes, activities, and crafts, and is a perfect fit for our youngest patrons. Children’s Hour will take place every Thursday at 10:30AM and usually be run by volunteer community members. This week, come and listen to stories about kid heroes from Nancy, the librarian.

The Readfield Community Library is currently on the outlook for some summer volunteers! Volunteers can help out by manning the front desk, or assist us with our programs and events. We’re on the lookout for a handful of cheerful folks who’d like to do one of our Thursday morning storytimes/Children’s hours, as well as some good strong backs and arms to help carry boxes for our summer booksale in August. If you’re interested, feel free to comment here, or contact the librarian by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (685-4089). Volunteers must be at least 13/14 years of age.
The Readfield Community Library has recently acquired all of the nominees for the Kennebec Valley Book Awards. Selected by local school librarians, the KVBAs award high quality fiction and nonfiction for students grades 3-5. Even if they’re not required reading, they’re always great reads. Take a look at the full list below, and pick out a few the next time you stop by the library.

Summer Reading is just around the corner. This year, the theme is “Every Hero Has A Story,” meaning our kick off party will be super-heroic! Come to the library on Wednesday, June 17th at 6:30PM to sign up for the program, pick up your first reading log, and enjoy free ice cream. Don’t be shy, dress the part if you can (whether it be your superhero costume from Halloween, or your favorite Batman pajama pants) and take a picture at our superhero photo booth. Have any questions? Feel free to contact the librarian by leaving a comment or sending an email (email@example.com).
Until then, see you at the party!
