On Tuesday October 23 at 6:30pm, John Piotti of the Maine Farmland Trust will offer an informational talk and lead a discussion about the Future of Farming with information about current projects in our community.
John will be discussing the importance of protecting and nurturing Maine’s agricultural future, which includes both economic and community benefits. Learn about trends in Maine farms and current and recent farmland protection projects in the region including Come Spring Farm in Union (a Georges River Land Trust project with MFT involvement) and Saving Camden Farmland for Farming initiative, a collaboration with Maine Coast Heritage Trust on preserving two local properties: Rokes Farm (Mechanic Street) and former Cripps Farm, now known as the Spear property (Simonton Road).
Saturday, October 20th at 1:30pm Mr. Andrew of Midcoast Martial Arts presents a program for kids on Staying Safe. This workshop will focus on what to do if a child finds him/herself lost, staying safe on the internet, when lost, and in public (what to do if an adult stranger approaches you and asks you to go with him/her). Kids gain confidence when they know they have choices and alternatives to handle difficulties they may encounter.
Kids should dress in comfortable clothes similar to what they would wear at school (for authenticity). Bring a water bottle if you have one. Space in each workshop is limited to 15 kids, to ensure individual attention and the best class experience. Please sign up early at the library, so that we have an idea of attendance. We will have a second session program on the same day if the response is big enough.
October 9th at 7pm, Michael Leonard of GreenME Inc. will discuss tips on Energy Saving for Homeowners. Topics include weatherization, insulation, and energy efficiency.
Beginning on Friday, October 5th, at 10:15am, we will begin hosting a weekly Older Children’s Storytime for those old enough to sit and listen to a story. Presented at the same time as Baby and Toddler Storytime, for the convenience of families with children of different ages.
October 2nd at 7pm, Joyce Grotton will talk on life planning. Part of a series on changes related to retirement.
