Summer Garden Tour

On Thursday July 5th the Jackson Memorial Library will host a tour of two gardens in Spruce Head Village. We will meet at 10 AM at 25 Village Rd. and then proceed to a garden around the corner at 21 Patton Point Road. Parking is available in an area across from the Spruce Head Community Church on Village Road. There is a rain date of July 6th if needed.  Call the library at 372-8961 for more information.

Summer Literary Series

 On Wednesday, June 27 Richard Russo and Kate Russo will kick off our Summer Literary Series.  In what many perceive as a cold digital age, Pulitzer-prize winning author, Richard Russo has teamed up with his daughter, artist Kate Russo, to create Interventions, as their tribute to the printed word. What makes the book truly special is the unusual format – each story is an individually soft-bound volume with a cover illustration by Kate.

Summer Reading

The Summer Reading Program for children and teenagers kicks off tomorrow here at the Jackson Memorial Library from 2-3 PM!  Come in, register, pick up Sea Dogs tickets vouchers and your reading log, and make a dream catcher.  The summer reading program can be done by independent readers or by those being read to.  The goal is to read for at least ten hours over the whole summer.

World Oceans Day

On June 11 approximately 40 children joined Jackson Memorial Library and Herring Gut Learning Center staff to participate in World Oceans Day.  The children were able to touch live sea creatures, played an informative game of Bingo, and created a mural, which is now hanging in the stairwell of the Jackson Memorial Library.  For more information about World Oceans Day, you can look here.

Gardening on Our Minds



 Tomorrow night at 7 PM we are hosting Lisa Colburn for a discussion of her new book, The Maine Garden Journal. 

  It's all about Maine gardening from people who love to garden! We hope you'll join us here at the library.
