Our Children’s Summer Reading Program begins with our Summer Kick off on July 12th with a traveling rock wall from Adventure Climbing! Other events include a Chalk Walk, a Fairy Festival, Monday Night Movies in the amphitheater, Shark Week activities, a Harry Potter Birthday celebration, Donut Day celebration, Blueberry Story Hour on Beech Hill with Coastal Mountains Land Trust, musical performances, and our 13th Annual Children’s Book-Fair-By-the-Sea! Please check our calendar for more details on all of our events.
Our monthly book groups are a fun way to talk about books we love, discover new authors, and share ideas. Our Maine Student Book Award Club is for students in grades 4-8. We have a list at the library, or you can check out the list at http://msba.umeedu.maine.edu/ for the latest books for suggestion. Our monthly meetings usually include a potluck and a lot of laughs.
Our YA Book-Lovers Club meets on a Tuesday once a month from 4 to 5. You don’t have to be a teen to like YA books, and we encourage anyone to attend. Our group choice changes monthly, so be sure to check out our events calendar or stop by the library to request the latest pick!
We are seeking your help to Stock the Stacks! The Stock the Stacks fund is an essential part of our operating budget, and it goes directly into purchasing new books. We always strive to keep the library shelves current and vibrant — and we can’t do it without you! Visit http://librarycamden.org/stockthestacks to donate – and thank you!
