Little Free Libraries
Pictured above is Owen Kral, standing in front of the Little Free Library located at the Deer Isle Yacht Club. This is one of 5 Little Free Libraries that our Library sponsors in Deer Isle. The other 4 locations are the following: Deer Isle Playground, "There's a Treat", "Nervous Nellies", and the park adjacent to our Library. Feel free to stop by these Little Free Libraries to take a book and maybe leave one of your books that you don't need anymore in its' place!
Booktalk with Nat Barrows
The Library recently hosted Penobscot Bay Press Publisher Nat Barrows for a booktalk on his new book, Through My Eyes: 50 Years of Community Publishing. Shown below are a few pics of the very well attended event!
BIRDSACRE Owl Program
A large crowd of children and adults gathered at the Library earlier this summer to meet some live owls and hear their stories! Grayson Richmond, of Birdsacre Wildlife Sanctuary in Ellsworth, presented a wonderful and informative program all about owls!

Attention Library Patrons & Deer Isle Citizens:
Please do NOT leave book or movie donations on the Library's doorstep! ANY & ALL donations must have prior approval from the Library Director.
While we APPRECIATE the generosity of patrons and citizens in wanting to donate items to the Library, we simply have NO SPACE to store them. Also, when things are left outside the door when the Library is closed, they have a tendency to get ruined by rain and dampness. At that point, a donation becomes a liability, because we then have to find someone to transport the items to the dump. This is NOT a kind thing to do to your local Library! Thank you for your compliance with this request!
COMING IN NOVEMBER!
