Baskets, books, story time in Lincolnville
Lincolnville — The Lincolnville Community Library has several free programs planned for the month of April.
On Saturday, April 19, people of all ages are invited to come to the library between 10 a.m. and noon to make paper baskets, bird’s nests and other fun items to celebrate spring. Paper, ribbon, markers and other materials will be provided.
On Tuesday, April 22, at 6 p.m., the library’s book group will meet to discuss "Orphan Train," by Christina Baker Kline. People who haven’t read the book but would like to participate are also welcome to come that night and tell about other books they’ve read or simply listen. Trudi Hennemuth, known to many in the area as a favorite substitute teacher, will lead the discussion. Participants are also encouraged to bring suggestions for the next book the group might read.
On Friday, April 25, children and their parents are invited to the library’s first story time from 10 to 11 a.m. Retired Linconville Central School kindergarten teacher Ann McKittrick will read from a selection of books from the library and her own collection. Simple art supplies will also be available for children who would like to do some drawing and coloring. The library plans to offer the story time at least once a month and perhaps more often if there is enough interest.
On Saturday, April 26 at 10 a.m., volunteers will gather to build a community compost bin on the grounds of the library. Anyone interested in helping is welcome to join them.
