Games, book chat and leprechauns at Lincolnville Community Library
Lincolnville — The Lincolnville Community Library will sponsor several free programs during March and April in its new home at 208 Main St. in Lincolnville Center.
Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m. to noon. In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, people of all ages are invited to the library to make leprechauns. Fun materials for the Irish holiday such as green ribbon, markers, and watercolor pencils and brushes will be provided. Volunteers will be there to work with children, who must be accompanied by an adult.
Tuesday, March 18, 5 to 8 p.m. The library will hold its third game night, which has already proven to be very popular, with 10 people participating the first time. The library has Scrabble, cribbage, cards and a few other games; people are welcome to bring their own to share. Game night will continue every first and third Tuesday of the month, including April 1 and 15.
Tuesday, March 25, 6 p.m. There will be a meeting for anyone interested in forming a book discussion group. Depending on people’s interests, this could be a group in which participants all read and discuss the same book or a group that meets to share information on the different books they’ve read.
Wednesday, April 2, 7 p.m. Gia Yannekis and Jens Ostergaard of Lincolnville will present a program about their travels by boat to Greenland, where they lived for several years. The presentation will include photos the couple took all along the way.
Other programs being planned at the library include a Wednesday afternoon group for those interested in gathering to do handwork such as knitting and crocheting, and a Friday morning story time for children beginning in April.
