For the summer of 2020, do you want to be part of a statewide discussion differerent from politics and pandemics?

Do you like reading and discussing books with your family, friends, and neighbors?  We have the perfect program for you!

Read ME is a statewide community read that gets Maine adults all reading two books recommended by a well-known Maine author.

For 2020, the Maine Humanities Council’s recommending author Lily King has chosen Roughhouse Friday by Jaed Coffin and The Vigilance of Stars by Patricia O’Donnell. The summer reading season will culminate at the end of August with a special episode of Maine Calling, broadcast in front of a live audience (date and location TBD).  We have copies of Roughhouse and Vigilance at the Library ready for check out.  Don’t know much about Lily King–we have her stuff too!
