Oyster River Community Read 2018 Has Begun!
Lectures, Films, Discussions, Storytellers, Art Exhibits for All Ages
Join Oyster River friends and neighbors as together we read Debby Irving's memoir, Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race. This book invites our community to explore race, culture, and diversity through the personal story of a New Englander whose move from suburbia to the city unravels her understanding of who she was raised to be. We have many extra copies--pick one up soon!  To learn more about the entire program, visit the Oyster River Community Read website.

New Furniture for the Children's Room
Thanks to a generous grant from Madbury's Wentworth Family Trust, we have just purchased several new browsing units for picture books and board books.  These are squeezed into our current space but will be perfect in the more spacious room planned for our new library.  Stop in and take a look!





 
MPL Has Received a CLiF Grant
New books have arrived!
We have received a CLiF Rural Library grant for the 2017-2018 school year.  CLiF, the Children's Literacy Foundation, seeks to create a culture of literacy in the communities it serves and encourage everyone to read for pleasure.   Our new books ($2,000 worth!) are now on display in the Children's Room.  We hope you'll come in and take a look!
