Spring Programs at the Library

By now, hopefully you’ve noticed some of the exciting events happening at the library! As we head into spring, you’ll find many programs, workshops, and series to inspire your imagination, encourage healthy living, and promote lifelong learning.

Starting Monday, April 3, and continuing every Monday through April, we are hosting a series called “Healthy Eating on a Budget“. This FREE 4-week series will give you skills to shop, cook, and eat healthy while staying within your budget. There will be demonstrations and tastings at each fun and interactive session! Space limited, registration required.

On Tuesday, April 11, we’re kicking off our “Self-Sufficient Living Series” with a program on raising chickens with Scott DeMoranville of Maine Poultry Connection and 4D’s Farm. Other events in this series include:

Alicia Mooney from Community Health and Counseling Services will be joining us at the library on Monday, April 10th to present a program on Home Health and Hospice Services at 1pm. She will give an overview of resources and services available in the region to assist with home healthcare.

Also, this Tuesday, April 4, marks the kickoff of our Beginner Knitting Class with Lynn Beaulier. This program is free and open to the public.
