Story Swap led Jo Radner

It’s almost Halloween. Makes sense that SCARY STORIES will be this month’s theme for the Charlotte Hobbs Story Swap, which will meet on Friday, October 27, from noon till 1:30. All are welcome, listeners as well as tellers!

So many things can be scary – not just ghosts. What haunts you? Have you had a close call with danger? A nightmare? The stories need not be personal – come with a folktale, a spooky story from a dark and stormy night, a “jump” tale to keep us all awake. Tell us a story from our world’s recent catastrophes, or from history. Or tease us with a mystery. It’s the season to look our fears in the face.

Come and put your name in the hat to share a 5-minute story, or just come to listen.

Bring a brown-bag lunch if you wish; we’ll provide beverages.

Pietree Orchard Fundraiser

Pietree Orchard offered us another wonderful opportunity to raise money for our programming. Buy one of their delicious homemade pies of any kind during the week of October 30th through November 5th and all proceeds will go to the library. They have many choices: apple, pumpkin, mixed berries, and strawberry rhubarb.

Furthermore if you bring your receipt of the pie (or better pies!) to the library you will receive a free raffle ticket for a signed Stephen King Book Raffle. You will have until Wednesday November 8th to bring in your receipts. That afternoon at 2 pm at the library, we will draw 5 winning tickets for a signed Stephen King book. You do not need to be present to win. The more pies you buy the bigger your chance! During the weekend of November 4 & 5, our library will also be selling high quality second hand books and book bags in the parking lot of Pietree Orchard.

We are very excited about this opportunity and we hope you’ll make it to Pietree Orchard that week.

You can find Pietree Orchard at 803 Waterford Road in Sweden, Maine. They are open daily from9 am – 5 pm. Their telephone: 207-647-9419.

For information about the fundraiser and raffle call the library at 925-3177.

Adult Book Discussion

In September we will be discussing the short novel The Old Man and The Sea by Earnest Hemingway. It was his last work of fiction published during his lifetime, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1953.  It is the story of an aging Cuban fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida.  It is an amazing story that will cause lots of discussion about success and failure.

Tai chi with Pam Katz

This six week Tai chi class started on July 5 and will run through August 9. Class will cost $8.00 an hour.

Pam Katz has been studying sun style tai chi for 20 years and has been teaching for twelve years. “Every time I practice, I still feel that I am improving and many times I am learning something new.” All ages welcome.

There are many styles of Tai chi but we will learn and practice sun style, which is recommended by the American Arthritis Association, and others, as the least stressful on the joints. It is definitely known to improve balance. Some other positive benefits may include muscle strength and coordination, concentration and improved memory. It also may reduce arthritic pain and improve cardiac function.
