November and December 2022 Book Discussions

Upcoming Book Discussions! Each meeting is 6:30-7:30 p.m.

November 15 .. We will visit the #1 book in Amazon’s category of Classic Action & Adventure: The Count of Monte Cristo written by Alexander Dumas in the edition translated by Robin Buss.

December 13 .. “They seek him here, they seek him there. Those Frenchies seek him everywhere. Is he in heaven or is he in hell? That demned elusive Pimpernel.” Yes, we will look for the elusive title character in Baroness Emmuska Orczy’s The Scarlet Pimpernel (the edition with an introduction by Gary Happenstand).

Please do join us and contact the Library to ensure we get enough copies of the books: 207-737-2770.

Short Stories at your fingertips!

The positive response to a small display of short stories has led to this: a permanent section for the short story books. The stories may be science fiction, mysterious, or romantic, but the common factor is books full of separate, and quick(!), reads.

When you search the catalog, SHORT in front of the call number indicates the titles you will find here.

Preschool Story Hour

Come join us Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. for our Preschool Story Hour. Each week will have a different theme. Miss Michelle will read a book, do a craft, and have a snack with the group. This program is geared for 1 to 5 year olds, but all ages are welcome. We will follow the Richmond school schedule and will not meet when school is closed. Story hour is a great place to make new friends for the young and old.
