Tremont Consolidated School Principal Pam Bush and Pemetic School Principal DIane Helprin will meet with school social workers and 25 middle school students at BHML to receive anti-bullying training during the first week of November.
Bass Harbor Memorial Library has recently begun providing library services to Kindergarten through Grade 4 students at Tremont Consolidated School each week. Library Director, Clara Baker, visits the school on Mondays and Thursdays, providing mini-lessons about library resources, reading books with the children, and helping students select and check out books.
Ms. Baker is working with the school media specialist to reorganize books in the school library to make the juvenile fiction and nonfiction collections easier to access.
Join A. Jones on Tuesday mornings in November for "Soul Journaling"--a process of knowing and expressing yourself through cutting, pasting, tearing, writing, painting, and collaging. No talent necessary! Call the library (244-3798) for more information or to register.

The trustees and staff of the Bass Harbor Memorial Library will be hosting two Community Conversations to get input from the community about the services they would like to see provided by the library.
The public is invited to attend either or both sessions at the library on Wednesday, August 20, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. and Wednesday, September 17, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Attendees are invited to discuss issues and opportunities for the Tremont community as it relates to the library. All opinions are welcome. Library users and non-users are encouraged to attend. Advance registration is not required. Snacks and beverages will be provided at both meetings.
The library plans to hold a third Community Conversation in October with Tremont School students to obtain opinions from younger members of our community.
The library is also conducting an online survey as an additional way to gather community perspectives. What would you like to see at your library? To take this survey, go to http://www.bassharborlibrary.com and click on Community Library Survey.
Community input is an important way to guide the library trustees and staff in planning for library services that meet community needs. For more information, questions or comments about Community Conversations, contact Clara Baker (email@example.com or 244-3798)
We are accepting books for our book fair in August. This annual event brings together our community, distributes good reads, offers white elephant treasures, yummy food, and musical entertainment. The library purchases new books with the money from this popular event.
We are accepting book donations--drop off or leave them during library hours. We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
