Read ME

Read ME is a statewide summer reading experience presented by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine State Library. Each year a well-known Maine author recommends two titles by lesser-known Maine authors. Libraries and patrons are invited to participate in online discussions as well as a special broadcast of Maine Calling featuring all three authors. This year's recommending author is Lily King. She has chosen The Vigilance of Stars by Patricia O'Donnell and Roughouse Friday by Jaed Coffin. We have multiple copies of both titles at the Library.
