As part of the READ ME program through the Maine Humanities Council, Thomaston Public Library will host a discussion of “Unknown Caller” by Debra Spark Tuesday, July 11, at 11 a.m.

Facilitated by Lee Heffner, this program promises to "spark" a lively conversation.  Weather permitting, it may meet in the library gazebo. Refreshments will be served. Books are currently available in the librarian's office. The second meeting of the READ ME group will be on Aug. 8 at 11 a.m. and will feature a discussion of “The Moth: 50 True Stories.”

Renny Stackpole will speak about his new book, “A Treasure in the Attic," Thursday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at the library. This program, held in cooperation with the Thomaston Historical Society, is open to all and will be held in the main room of the library. Refreshments will be served.

Former history teacher, curator and ship restorer, Stackpole discovered a cache of papers that became the subject of this book while exploring his house. He is director emeritus of the Penobscot Marine Museum and a past president of the Thomaston Historical Society.

Thomaston Public Library, located in the historic Thomaston Academy building on Main Street/Route 1, has elevator access and plenty of parking in the back. For more information, call 354-2453.
