Thank Goodness It’s Spring!

The Library offers so many ways to learn and grow, please come take advantage of some of our wonderful workshops and activities. We have seeds to start, cooking tools to create wonderful meals, activity kits for kids and families to explore new ideas, museum passes for checkout, and of course some amazing books to challenge and entertain.

Our Youth Services To-Go Bags have been such a huge success; Miss Samantha has done an amazing job of creating these cultural and STEAM-related activities that families can take home to do. These bags will be available through June, and then start up again in September.  For the month of May we have Greece Cultural Bags and Plant and Grow STEAM Bags.

For adults and families we have an InstantPot Potluck Lunch on Saturday May 4th where people can bring in recipes they make, or just come and enjoy some tasty food. Those who bring in a dish to share will receive a gift card to Hannaford or Food City, as our way of saying thank you for sharing! We will also be starting a Community Cookbook, for people to share their recipes with everyone.

We also have a Garden Planning workshop on Saturday May 11th. This is also a little reminder that the Bridgton Community Center Community Garden may still have beds available, perfect for those who don’t have yard space available.

The Friends of the Bridgton Library are looking for new members, and for help with their annual book sale, currently scheduled for Saturday July 6th. They need some help with setting up the tables and arranging the books, as well as for clean up at the end. If you would like to help keep this long-standing tradition going, please contact the Library today and let us know what you can do.

Finally, please let us know what kind of activities you would like to see here at the Library through the summer. The survey is available on our website ( or at our Main Circulation Desk.

Happy Spring!
