At the Library by Sally Holt

As spring approaches, Raymond Village Library is anticipating a busy and exciting April chock full of programs for all ages.

Throughout the year on Mondays, Baby/Toddler Storytime is at 10:30 a.m. and on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., Pre-Schoolers gather to listen to stories and do crafts. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to connect with other parents and for children to socialize with one another.

On Sunday, April 7 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., students, ages eight years or older are invited to join us to play board games. Prizes and snacks will be part of this fun-filled afternoon. 

Author, Kieran Shields will be dropping by on April 10, at 6 p.m. to talk about his new book, “ A Study in Revenge,” the sequel to his first novel, “The Truth of All Things,” a historical thriller set in Portland, Maine in 1892. Returning characters, Lean and Grey investigate the theft of a recently buried body and the staging of a bizarre occult scene that is linked to a centuries-old magical relic. Kieran spent many summers in Raymond when he was a young boy and has fond memories of the area.

In partnership with Norway Savings Bank, the library will offer three free financial education workshops for new and aspiring entrepreneurs as well as operating small business owners.

This is a three part series. The first part, Financial Management, will be given at the library on April 3, at 6 p.m. The other two workshops will be Record Keeping on April 17 and Time Management on April 24. All sessions are from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Coffee and refreshments will be served. Space is limited, so please call the library at 655-4283 to let us know if you would like to sign up.

In anticipation of the upcoming Raymond Village Library Garden Tour in June, Point Sebago has generously donated a gift certificate to the Raymond Village Library, for five nights at Point Sebago, beginning June 16 to June 21, 2013. Raffle tickets are now being sold at the Raymond Village Library for $5 each and 4 tickets for $15. The winning ticket will be drawn on Sunday, May 26.
All proceeds will go toward the purchase of library materials.

Customer Service, staying true to our history and the transformational nature of libraries is very important to the nation’s libraries and to the Raymond Village Library.
