Cape Celebrates Literacy

Thomas Memorial Library is pleased to participate in Cape Elizabeth’s third annual community-wide literacy festival! The festival culminates in AuthorFest on Saturday, April 11, a event featuring book signings and author events by over 70 Maine and regional authors. Many of the authors coming to AuthorFest will be working with students at Cape Elizabeth schools during the week of April 6 – 10. Several authors will be doing events for children and families elsewhere around town, as well as here at the library. We also have several other special guests offering early literacy events for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers here at the library beginning on Thursday, April 2.

Below you find links to all the special events happening at the library. At the bottom of the page you will find information about some of the other public events happening around town, as well as link to the complete events listing.
