Black Fly Bash - Plants, Bake and Book Sale - Thank you

Plant, Bake & Book Sale

(Black Fly Bash)

 

On Saturday, June 3, NV Public Library held its Annual  Plant, Bake & Book Sale – fondly known as the Black Fly Bash. Yes – there were plenty to go around!

 

We had a wonderful array of plants – flowers, veggies and even indoor varieties–  the Lilies that Helen Wilkey of Vienna provides, the plants from Attwood’s Nursery in New Portland, Robin’s Flower Pot in Farmington, Michelle Case in New Vineyard for their donations and of course those plants  from our local gardeners!

 

Our army of bakers produced pies, breads (with relevant names to the Black Fly), cookies, cobblers, cakes and even a candy or two  - all of which seemed to disappear very early on in the day.

 

And the books were a great hit as people got into the summer reading mode and had to take at least one book with them.

 

Thank you to all our contributors and customers for making this event such a success and supporting the NVPL mission. And a big thank you to Glenda and Dick Hargreaves for giving people the opportunity on Sunday to pick up a plant or two.

 

Great time in a great community. See you next year!!

New Vineyard Public Library Golf Scramble


NV Public Library held its Annual Golf Scramble at the Diadema Golf Course in North Anson on Sunday, June 10tth.

 

The course was in perfect condition, the weather couldn’t have been better and 43 players engaged in a “best ball” competition. Following a 9 hole scramble where there was opportunity  for many  to show their skills for the longest drives, putting and chipping competitions and even attempts for a Hole in One – the players had a delightful lunch organized and served by  our Librarian Mina Miller and NVPL Trustees  - Glenda Hargreaves and Betsy Turcotte…most enjoyable. Awards followed with much participation by the audience recognizing the accomplishments of teams and individuals. John Maki who is the force behind the scenes for organizing the teams and course activities provided some special prizes for unsuspecting individuals.

 

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to making this event a such a success and we hope that you will join us next year for our 6th scramble. Teams can register with John Maki at 652-2417

 

Please recognize our Donors who support New Vineyard Public Library with their contributions – we appreciate what they do to bring the Library’s mission to the New Vineyard community.

What's New at the Library

posted Nov 4, 2016, 9:53 AM by New Vineyard Public Library   [ updated Nov 4, 2016, 10:24 AM ]

It is Friday morning. The stitchers have gathered in the library to share stories of horses, sheep and hay. In between stories a few stitches are made. There are nibbles of the yummy pumpkin read that Glenda brought for the day. It is a nice change of atmosphere from other quiet times. It is the Friday ritual that reminds us that some of our community have left for warmer climates. We could be envious of them. But we are stalwart in our tolerance of winter.  It is this weekly gathering at the library that fulfills a vision we see for the library--a gathering place for our small community.

The shelves are filling with some new titles. There is the latest Paul Doiron, The Widowmaker. The memoir by Bruce Springsteen, Born to Run, promises to be a great read for anyone who is a fan. The Maine State Library delivers large print books every month. This month's selection includes some great mysteries and westerns. The juvenile and children's section has some new titles too.The Knights of the Borrowed Dark is an excellent middle grade fantasy. We have also started a small graphic novel shelf. These books are a good choice if you have a reluctant reader.

The library is looking for volunteers. There are flyers around town that explain what we are hoping for. If you would like to be a friend of the library, please feel free to call the library at 652-2250.This is also a good time to remind folks that our craft fair is November 19th. We are still looking for donations for our table of baked goods and crafts to sell. We also need volunteers to set up on the Friday afternoon before the fair. Our display table theme is Hats and Mittens. If you have any new or gently used hats or mittens you would like to donate we will make sure that they go to someone who needs them.

Finally, I'd like to share a book I am reading. It is titled Public Library by Ali Smith. It is a collection of short stories which all touch on books and words in some way. In between the chapters are interviews with writers and thinkers about their life long relationship with libraries. The book was written in response to Britain's austerity after the financial crisis in 2008 which caused many state funded libraries to either close or revert to volunteer run organizations. I think we are lucky to live where we do. We live in a state where even the smallest town has a library and a community that supports it.

For this we are truly grateful.
