CDC recommends that masking in public settings is not required in any county facing low or medium levels of coronavirus risk. (Currently, the risk is ‘Medium’ for Waldo Co. Check for updates here.) In response to these new guidelines, patrons and volunteers are not required to wear face coverings when at the library. However, patrons and volunteers are encouraged to wear face coverings, especially if they are at high risk or not vaccinated. .

The library will begin holding small programs with under ten attendees in the library. We will also continue to offer programs virtually. Outside groups may request to use the library for  meeting space. Please see the Building Use Policy. This policy will be reevaluated on June 25th.

Pie Sale

Sat, June 4, 9:00am – ’til sold out.
The first Pie Sale of the summer! Sale will be held outside in front of the library.

.

 We need your help. We cannot have a Pie Sale without pie bakers. Please bring pies to the library between 8-9:00am that morning. Or contact Sue Chapin to make other arrangements. Please be sure pies are covered and label the kind of pie. Boxes are available at the library.

 

Plant Sale

June 11, 9:00am-2:00pm, held outside

As you are working in your garden this spring and have perennials to separate, please consider donating some for the plant sale. However, some extra precautions must be taken this year – when sharing plants, you should shake off as much dirt as you can, wash the roots – basically get down to bare roots – and then pot up the plants in a bagged soil. Be very careful not to leave potted plants that are going to leave your property sitting on the ground, where worms might find their way into the pot. Read more

.

We also want your extra seedlings and houseplants. Please label them with their name and other helpful information, such as color, size, growing conditions, etc.

.

Donations for the Plant Sale can be dropped off at the library on Friday afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00pm. Please let us know if you need pots or need to make other arrangements for drop off.

A number of people have expressed interest in the Craft Fair. So we decided we better have a rain date in case the weather is not conducive to being outside.
