Meet the new Librarian!
She's very shy - we can't get her to pose but everyone in town knows who she is.
Pennie Alley is now serving as
Director of the South Thomaston Public Library.
Her incredible experience here as the assistant librarian for years, her relation with the children of the town she has developed through her various story hours and programs, as well as her knowledge of the town, its people, and its needs, all make her the perfect choice to continue her leadership role to make South Thomaston Public Library one of the best in the state.
Stop by, say hello, offer to help. She can't do it all by herself. (and maybe she'll even let you snap a picture.)
Summer Reading Program
The annual Summer Reading Program for adults kicks off June 1st. This summer we once again feature the opportunity to read, relax and enhance your Maine summer by keeping track of your reading. Anyone who reads three books between June 1st and Sept 17th is eligible to enter a drawing to win an e-reader. Reading journals are available at the circulation desk. Stop by to pick one up and register. The program is open to any registered card holder (summer visitors who register are eligible also).
Readers will earn extra entries for reading from the list of Finalists for this year's Maine Reader's Choice Awards, but any reading, in any format: e-book, print book, or audio is accepted. Join in the fun. Set a good example for our young people, and enjoy some of summer's best memories.
Our Volunteer pool is getting shallow again.
Many of our loyal group of volunteers have headed to warmer climes for the winter. We welcome newcomers who have 2-4 hours per month to work with our now slimmed down workforce. Contact Pennie Alley at 594-7416, or stop by the library if you can help. We need folks with simple computer skills, or who want to straighten shelves, run copies, pick up materials at the Post Office, drop off books at our "free shelves" at the town office and airport. If you've got time, we can be sure to fill it.
