Wednesday Game Nights

  • Cribbage Night –  the first Wednesday of the month. Bring your cribbage boards and cards and have fun playing. Novices welcome!
  • Scrabble Night – the second Wednesday of the month. Bring your Scrabble boards.

There was some interest in playing more Mah Jong and if folks want to get together on the third Wednesday (or a different time), please contact us. Are there other games or interest groups?

Knitting & other crafts

An informal group gathers at the library on Wednesday mornings, 10:00-12:00. Anyone welcome!

Book Discussion Group

Let’s Talk About It Book Discussion beginning in May, 2017. Sign-up is required.

Sheepscot Valley Quilters

Meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. from September to June.

Sheepscot Valley Quilters is a small group of quilt lovers and makers – from beginners to advanced. Our meetings are low key and friendly and participation in our projects is purely voluntary. This year’s planned projects include making a sunshine quilt or two for those in need of a hug, learning how to make a block, learning some embroidery stitches to embellish quilt blocks or wallhangings, doing a brown bag exchange challenge as our swap gift at our holiday party, show-and-tell (always!), sharing ideas and hints, and just having a good time with good companionship while sharing what we love!  Call Sue Chapin, 589-4863, for more information. We’d love to have you join us!

Lego Group

We are seeking someone who will continue after the summer. We have a Lego table and Legos. We will discuss with the volunteer some ways that other libraries have structured their activities, but it will be their responsibility to carry-out the activity and supervise the kids, grades K-3. There will be a volunteer in the library at the same time. This could be weekly, every-other-week, or monthly. This can be determined by the volunteer. If you are interested, please contact Barbara Worcester.

Basic Literacy Tutoring

There are two trained literacy volunteers who are available to meet with you at the library. Through Belfast Adult Education, we will provide services in reading, writing, math and technology. Most lessons take place once a week for 1 to 2 hours.  Lessons are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. This is not a school, there are no “classes,” it is one-on-one training to meet YOUR reading goals.

To get started, please contact the Literacy Volunteers of Waldo County or call 338-3197.
