March Madness Cribbage Tournament

Ephraim Staples is the 2023 Winner!

There were 18 players in this year’s tournament. Ephraim Staples and Judy Fuller beat out the other competitors to play in the final match.  Ephraim won in two matches. Both are pictured above with Ephraim holding the prize of a handcrafted Lake St. George Cribbage board from LSG Brewing to add to his collection. Judy deserves an honorable mention, though, because she just newly learned to play Cribbage in January at the library. So she will win the 2 dozen eggs from Heart & Hand Farm.


Tiny Art Show

A few of the Tiny Art paintings.


Tiny Art Exhibit during March and April featuring 3×3” canvases made from the February DIY kits. Come see what others have done! There is still time  to be part of the Tiny Art Show, bring in your tiny art canvas to the library by March 3rd. Be sure your name, email, and phone number are on the back. Art will be returned to artists after the art show.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The library invites you to participate in this free program which encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before he or she starts kindergarten. Any child from birth until he or she enters kindergarten can participate in the program. The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless.


Register your child and get more information.


Children who are introduced to reading at an early age tend to excel at school and are quicker to develop critical learning skills.


Pull on your boots (or perhaps your snowshoes!) to enjoy the winter StoryWalk® on the Haystack Mountain Trail. This enjoyable family activity offers time outdoors in nature, physical exercise, and introduces you to a new book. In Fox versus Winter by Corey R. Tabor, Fox does not like winter. None of his friends are around to play. He is bored and alone. Then Fox has an idea. If he cannot escape winter, he will fight it!


Haystack Mountain Trail is located 200 yards in back of Walker Elementary School, 33 West Main St., Liberty. The 1.1-mile footpath loop winds through a mixed northern hardwoods forest with a short spur to the open summit.


Book Discussion

Rescheduled -Wed, March 29th, 6:30pm
Our March book is Eat the Buddha: Life and Death in a Tibetan Town by Barbara Demick. Just as she did with North Korea, she tells the story of Aba, a town 11,000 feet above sea level in the far western reaches of China, through the private lives of ordinary people living there.
. discussion ea
Since the March discussion was postponed, we decided to post the April 19th discussion early so folks could get copies.  Our April book will be  Saving Jemima : Life and Love with a Hard-luck Jay by Julie Zickefoose. There is a copy available at Liberty MILS but more may be borrowed through MaineCat. The eBook and audiobook are available on hoopla©.
Suggest a nonfiction book  for future Book Discussions.
