New books are now available for two-week checkout at library


LIVERMORE FALLS — Treat Memorial Library has announces that the new book policy has changed. New books will now be able to be checked out for two weeks instead of one.

Library staff recently gave a tour to local fourth graders. In addition to getting to know the library, they listened to a reading of “The Book with No Pictures” by B.J. Novak and learned how to make their own books from one sheet of paper.

Organization that would like to tour the library are welcome to contact staff. They can set up a time.

The library is displaying some desert scenes done by the Livermore Elementary School. The exhibit is in the Maine room.

The last meeting of Let’s Talk About It: Refreshing the Whodunit Book discussion group will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 8. There are still copies of the book available if anyone would like to join for the meeting. Share an opinion on Inspector Morimoto and the Japanese Cranes, the next mystery set in Japan. The Maine Humanities Council sponsored the group and Maryanne C. Ward led the discussions.

Preschool Story Time Wednesdays are held at 10:30 a.m. and Family Story Time Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. A different theme is explored each time through stories, songs and activities. Story times are presented by staff members Brianna Rush and Nick Berry. Parents are invited to offer suggestions.

The knit/crochet group will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27. Those who have questions or who want to work on a new project are invited to attend. All experience levels are welcome.
