As you may already know, we met on Tuesday, July 19 to discuss “Time Is a River” by Mary Alice Monroe. We had all really enjoyed the book and learned something about fly fishing. Trelba Rollins led the discussion.

Upcoming meetings will include:

~~~ Aug. 16: Jane Fairchild will lead the discussion for Bill Bryson's “Made in America: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States.” This is a nonfiction title that promises to be a lot lighter and funnier than the subject might imply – Judy told about the problem she had reading another of Bryson's books in a public setting and trying to control herself from laughing out loud !

~~~ Sept. 20: Linda Moe will lead the discussion of J. Courtney Sullivan's “Maine,” a novel about three generations of women preparing to gather at their summer home in Maine. This has recently been well reviewed in both Downeast Magazine and The New York Times Book Review.

~~~ Oct. 18: Cathy Knox will lead the discussion of Ardeana Hamlin's “Abbott's Reach,” her new sequel to “Pink Chimneys.” This novel follows the granddaughter of the main character in her earlier book as she travels the world with her ship's captain husband. We discussed the possibility of inviting the author to attend our discussion.

So we have some interesting reads coming up, and I'll look forward to both the reading of the books and the talking about them !

We have an important change to announce. The library will not be open until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27 due to a mandatory training taking place that day. We will still close at 8 p.m.

Due to this temporary time change, the Wednesday Storytime will take place at 4:30 p.m. instead of 2:30 p.m. Monica Demers will be our community reader again this week and we would like to thank her both for reading, and for taking the time change in stride on such short notice.

Have questions ? Call 943-2612 or email us at milolibrary@trcmaine.org.

Summer Hours: Mon. 2:00-8:00 p.m., Wed. 2:00-8:00 p.m., Fri. 1:00-7:00 p.m.
