Dear Sun Spots: The BookReach program of the Auburn and Lewiston public libraries is looking for volunteers to share about an hour per week, morning or afternoon time, reading aloud to young children in Lewiston and Auburn. After attending a brief orientation, each volunteer reader is matched with a licensed family child care home where he or she reads from a different bag of books every one to two weeks.

This is a wonderful opportunity for people who would enjoy introducing young children to the wonder of stories, and who would like to give to our community in a meaningful and positive way. Please call Kathleen Demers, BookReach Coordinator, at 784-0135, extension 213 to learn more. – Kathleen Demers, Lewiston.

Dear Sun Spots: I am a patient of Central Maine Family Practice. When I call there to make an appointment, and I am put on hold, I hear the most beautiful Celtic music.

I asked one of the girls who work in the office, and she said it was a Celtic compact disc that was bought at a store, but she did not know the name of it. Could Sun Spots find out the name and possibly the item number or the company that produces it? When I have looked online for Celtic CDs, there are usually many by the same name, so I would want to get the right one. I would love to purchase it. Thank you for your help. – T.G., Lewiston.

Answer:
According to Muriel at the practice, the music is “Celtic Journey: Contemporary Celtic Melodies.” Using that name, Sun Spots was able to locate a recording by singer Mairéid Sullivan.

You may want to check out www.maireid.com for more details and to see if you recognize her work. There are other recordings by other artists both Irish, American and otherwise.

However without more information Sun Spots is unsure which one may be the one you are trying to locate. Another is “A Celtic Journey” by Medwyn Goodall. For more details on this one, contact www.amazon.com.
