ReadMe 2021

This summer’s “ReadMe” is up and running! (Readme is a statewide reading program sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council). This year’s choices, picked by mystery writer Gerry Boyle, are Mill Town by Kerri Arsenault (non-fiction) and Mainely Power by Matt Cost (fiction). The Long Island Community Library has Mill Town, and Mainely Power is on order. I read Mill Town a few months ago, and I’m eager to read Mainely Power for my in-town book group.

So, pick up one of these books, and enjoy reading books that many others in Maine are reading along with you! (check the ReadMe website for author talks that you can join in on)

LICL summer book group 2019

It’s that time again! This summer’s choice of book is Edith Wharton’s novel, “The House of Mirth.”  Please join us as we examine the status of women in the “Gilded Age” and follow Lily Bart as she struggles between her search for a meaningful relationship and the indignities of the “marriage market.”

Please sign up at the library if you would like to participate. We will meet on Mondays at 7:00 PM in the small library meeting room, beginning with August 5th, then the 12th and 19th. Please call Penny Murley 766-5931 for more information.
