Summer Reading

WOW! Participants in the Liberty Library Summer Reading program donated $885 to the Liberty Area Food Pantry. 46 people participated: 25 children, 5 teens, and 17 adults.


These area businesses made it possible: Lake St. George Brewing Company, Liberty Graphics, Pieceworks, Inc., Good Natured Shop, Pinnacle Grill, and John’s Ice Cream, along with the Liberty Library. We certainly are an example of this year’s theme “All Together Now.” Great job everyone!

Wood Turned Bowls Exhibit

Gus Szabronski lives in Liberty. His wife says he has too many hobbies. Lucky for us, one of those hobbies is working with wood. Whether it be furniture, building boats, caning chairs, or turning wood, he enjoys working with wood.


During the months of September and October, the library will display his wood turned bowls. We are fortunate in Maine to have a variety of local woods to work with: maple, oak, cherry, and ash are all available. Softwood like pine, spruce, poplar, and cedar are also available. Gus says that the type of wood will many times dictate the size, shape, texture, color, and look of the finished product. His crafted bowls are for sale, with a generous 25% of the sales going to the library.


Wood turning is relaxing and rewarding from the first steps of selecting the wood, to watching it take shape to applying the last coat of finish. Finally, you can step back, admire, and appreciate the piece you have created.”



Coming soon …

Rumors of coming Cold and Darkness spread through the woods until a birch tree stump uses wisdom and humor to calm the animals’ fears.

The tale was Inspired by Gluskap, the heroic and kind-hearted figure of Wabanaki legends. Portraits of Wabanaki tribal elders were used as a springboard for the extraordinary paintings that make this a children’s book like no other.


Haystack Mountain Trail is behind Walker Elementary School. This 1.1-mile footpath loop winds through a mixed northern hardwoods forest with a short spur to the open summit. Take the road on the left of the Walker Health Center and park at the ball field behind it. Address: 43 West Main St. Liberty, ME.
