Advanced Care Planning Workshop

Dr. Marianne Jackson and Joan Lanoie will lead this workshop on completing Advanced Care Directives and having conversations about end-of-life values. In this workshop you will be provided with free Maine Advanced Directives and help to complete them. You will also practice with various tools for opening the conversations about values, preferences and priorities.

Even if you already have an advance directive, there is more to consider. What does it mean not to be a burden? Are there any restrictions you would put on life sustaining treatments? What is a trial of treatment and how long should it go on? Are there any resolutions you need to make now? Using Five Wishes and My Gift of Grace Cards, your wishes can be clarified. This workshop will help you identify and put in writing personal, spiritual and emotional issues everyone will face when experiencing serious illness or end of life.

The workshop welcomes people to come as families, partners, or just friends to share their ideas together. Dr. Jackson served the New Hampshire North Country as an Ob-Gyn for 25 years before completing a Masters in Public Health. Joan Lanoie is a former childbirth educator and now serves as the President of the Board for Visiting Nurse Home and Hospice of Carroll County.

'Food For Thought' Film Festival

Our library will be hosting a screening of GROWING LOCAL as part of this exciting film festival. This short movie was produced for the Maine Farmland Trust. This statewide organization protects farmland and supports farmers. Their goal is not just to protect Maine farmland, but to revitalize Maine’s rural landscape by keeping agricultural lands working and helping farmers, and their communities, thrive.

The movie shows three poignant stories that help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement. Chris Franklin, staff member of the Maine Farmland Trust will be on hand to help lead the discussion afterwards based on the topics and issues that come up in the film that might be relevant to our community.

PYSANKA with Jodi Smith

Eggs.JPG

Jodi Smith has led this popular egg decorating workshop since 2012! Come get in the mood for Easter and decorate an egg using the Ukrainian traditional wax-resist method (“pysanka”). We will draw on a real egg with melted wax, using the traditional wax tool, and then dip the egg into a succession of dyes. After the decorating is done, the wax is removed, and the egg varnished and emptied, leaving a sturdy and festive ornament.

Please call the library to sign up.
