We are honored to be hosting the Honor Case from The Summit Project in the library for several months. The Summit Project is a living memorial to the fallen service members from Maine who have died since September 11, 2001. The mission of the Project is to honor our state’s newest war casualties and the faithful spirit of all Mainers. Marine Major David Cote, the founder of The Summit Project, will speak at the library on Saturday, January 28 at 2:30 p.m. For more information about the Honor Case and the talk, please click here.
If you are at least 16 years old, you can apply to be a Teen Leader at the library’s new after school program for elementary and middle school kids. The program takes place on weekdays from 2:30 – 5:00. You can download the details here.
If you would like to apply, you will find the online application form here.
An art exhibit entitled “Maine and Beyond” will be on display in the Stier Family Gallery through January 31, 2017. The exhibit is largely watercolor paintings as well as pictures using mixed media. Jill is a local Cape Elizabeth artist who uses her surroundings of the nearby beaches and other natural scenes as subjects for her work. There will be an opening reception on Friday, January 6, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. All are welcome!
Postcrossingis a non-profit organization whose goal is to get people to send and receive actual, written postcards to and from other members around the world. The library has had an account for about four months–a display of the postcards we received can be viewed in the lobby. We plan to set up a monthly Postcrossing Club for members to share postcards they’ve received, and to swap blank postcards to send. You can set up your free account by going to Postcrossing, where you will also find out more information about how it works. If you have questions about Postcrossing or our plans for the club, please email Rachel Davis.
