Waldoboro — Waldoboro Public Library held its annual pie sale Wednesday, Nov. 27. The sale has been held for 10 years and all proceeds go to benefit the library.

The pie sale is organized by the Board of Trustees, according to Library Director Cathrina Skov. The Trustees, friends of the library and Skov and other staff members bake and donate the pies. Skov said the most interesting pie she has seen was one with a multi-berry filling, and consisted of one crust folded over the top, “like wrapping a present.”

Waldoboro Public Library was founded in 1916. They have been at their current location of 958 Main St. since March of 2007. The library hosts many programs, including Artist of the Month, Children’s Story Hour and a rotating Quilt Exhibit.

The library offers services such as interlibrary loans, adult literacy instruction, wireless internet and free passes to the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland.

While the library has a few staff members, they are dependent on volunteers to provide most services. Skov stated that the library currently has enough volunteers, but is always happy to meet with new candidates and discuss their interest in helping.
