Friday, Aug. 21, from 1 to 3 p.m., all are welcome to Carver Memorial Library's summer reading party.

Darling’s Ice Cream Truck will be at the library, so come enjoy a (free) sweet treat and support a great cause—all donations will go directly to the Searsport Ambulance Defibrillator Fund!

Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause was designed as a fun way to give back to local communities and causes. The truck attends local events to give out ice cream for free, in exchange for voluntary donations to benefit the cause or charity. Since 2012, the truck has raised more than $112,000 for hundreds of local causes.

You can find Carver Memorial Library at 12 Union St., Searsport. For more information on the summer reading party, call Carver Memorial Library at 548-2303, email, or visit For more information on the Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause program, visit or email
