Director’s Note: Something Big is Coming!

Something BIG is coming to Skidompha Library. This summer we are bringing back the Community Read, and it’s more magnificent than ever before. Mark your calendars now, and prepare for 6 weeks of thrills, spills and chills from the end of June to the beginning of August.

What’s the book? Can’t tell you. Not yet! But if you happen to pick up a copy of The Lincoln County News Magazine, Farm & Table, on the 24th of this month, you’ll see our grand reveal!

Even though I can’t tell you the title of the book, I can tell you that this summer we are focusing on the themes of Food, Community, and Identity. Join us as we read, cook, and eat together, learn about Midcoast Maine’s farmers, producers, chefs and culinary minds, and ask the fundamental questions of who are we, and what do we eat? Programs will include our second-annual Community “Read-Aloud” from the chosen book, Book Discussions, Food Films, a Farm to Table Dinner and Meet Your Farmer Event, Cooking Contest, Food Writing Contest, Local Foods and Beer, a discussion on Food Security and Childhood Hunger, partner events with the DRA and Wild Seed Project, Live Music & Performance, and an evening with the Author!

Have I piqued your interest? Are you hungry for more? Stay tuned – Skidompha Library is cooking up events to keep the whole family, including your out-of-state visitors, entertained all summer long.

You’re welcome.
