We heard you! The community asked for coffee and tea to be available at the library and we have responded. Warm drinks are now available during all library hours. Decaf and regular coffee, Early Grey and herbal tea! $1 for a to-go cup; .50 to use a library mug. Come have a warm drink by the fire this winter.
We will exhibit new work by Judy Taylor this winter at BHML. Judy completed 10 painting this past year of scenes of Islesford. The works include a portrait of Ashley Bryan. The exhibit comes directly from Little Cranberry, where it has been on display this fall.
Suzanne and Pete Madeira and Nancy Stanley will share picture and anecdotes from their 155 km (97 mile) walk through the Scottish Highlands on Tuesday, November 17th at 7pm.
Opened in 1980, the West Highland Way was Scotland's first long distance route and remains the most popular, with thousands of walkers tackling it each year. The route leaves the northern suburbs of Glasgow and passes along the eastern shore of Lock Lomond, the largest body of fresh water in Britain, and across Rannoch Moor, Scotland's grandest wilderness. It continues through some of the finest scenery of mountain and stream, woodland and moorland that Scotland has to show and ends at Fort William in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Britain.
Refreshments to follow.
Stay tuned--We will be rolling out our new access to the Maine State Downloadable Library in the New Year!
The Library will sell children's books for .25 cents from November 21 through December 5 during library hours. This is a great opportunity to bring children to buy holiday gifts for siblings and friends! Come find a treasure for the holidays.
