Weekend Events and Celebrations

It was a busy and fun weekend at the library for all staff and volunteers who worked on a variety of projects.

On Saturday and Sunday we held our annual book and bake sale and raised over $460 for the library. Library staff members worked hard to make the sale a success. We want to thank everyone who assisted with the sale by either volunteering to help staff the tables and collect money, move books and tables, or by bringing in a baked good for the food table.

The library also had a float in the Potato Blossom Parade in Fort Fairfield and volunteers and staff worked hard to decorate and make the float a success. Mimi the Mime was there handing out candy to parade watchers.

We also had the Presque Isle High School Class of 1953 visit the library for their 55th class reunion. Local historian Dena Winslow was the guest speaker and she gave a wonderful presentation on the Lynching of Jim Cullen.
