My home town library in Maine

onwriting2

My home town has a small library. Thanks to a grant that was approved they were able to build a second room. It is nothing fancy but it is amazing for a number of reasons. First it is run by two sisters who happen to both be nuns. Another the history of the Acadians is there for us to look over. My family on both sides are such.

I have given a copy of each of my books to them and will continue to do so to do my part in helping them out. Walking into the library a few weeks ago I came across the stand that houses my novels, along with the feather of Jasper and his bio that I included as a package. The sisters had sent me a picture of it which thrilled me but to see it in person gave me some satisfaction that I was helping out.

Growing up the only library I had access to was the one at school and the times were limited for us to go explore. I love libraries, I am at mine so often that the staff thinks I work there or should. The many things they offer, all free, is diverse and finding something to do there is easy. I am thrilled that now my home town has one and that it is growing and run by a board of dedicated people.

Who knows what is in store for them and what I will find next time I am home. I am excited for them and the community for what is to come.

  1. Libraries are like paradise to readers and writers alike. I’ve loved them all my life, like you, Sharon, and spent many happy hours browsing and reading in our small local one when I was young. It’s lovely that you’ve given them copies of your books, too.
    Hope all is well with you and you’re still happily writing. 🙂

  2. It is nice to meet another one like me for who gets it but a fellow patron. I am happily working on three projects while awaiting the release of my next book. Hope all is well with you and all your ventures. 🙂
