CASCO – The Casco Library will hold its annual coffee on Wednesday, July 6, at 14 Allen Hill Road, off Route 121.

This year’s attendees will have an opportunity to tour a large bungalow overlooking Thompson Lake in Oxford and see how an active homeschooling family organizes their schooling and hobbies with their home life.

The Davidson family has agreed to let the public peek into their daily lives. Yvette, David, Kelsey, Ethan, Luke and Emma have been active users and volunteers at the Casco Library for eight years. Having become familiar with the library’s day to day operations, they understand how important the fund-raiser is to the library.

Guest speaker will be Tracy Kane, the author and illustrator of “The Fairy House Series.” Kane is a New Hampshire author, who works with various groups creating villages of fairy houses and imparting a respect for the woods and its creatures along the way. Her three books and video will be available for purchase and autographing

Kane and her husband, Barry, established Light-Beams Publishing because of their desire to counteract today’s fast paced, media saturated lifestyle. Their mission is to help children connect with nature in ways that inspire their creativity and a reverence for nature. They particularly love working with a multi-generational group. Building fairy houses has proven to be an engaging and memorable activity for family members of all ages.

There will be baked goods for sale and sampling. The house tour will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the author will have a presentation at 10:30. Afterward she will be available to autograph her books.

The Casco Library coffee began as a formal afternoon tea in 1954, but in 1980 it was changed into a more informal morning coffee.
