Searsmont Town Library

Special events abound this month at the library! On Valentine's Day, drop by for sizzling Board Game action at 4 p.m. and a steamy book group discussion of Erik Larson's “The Devil in the White City” at 6 p.m.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 10 a.m., meet at the library with the Georges River Land Trust for an outdoor family-friendly event. Our adventure leader will be Lisa Kane, presenting "Animals' Amazing Adaptations."

We had a really wonderful group of folks for the first Lite Lunch at the Library on Jan. 25. It was so good to see people sitting, relaxing at the library, and chatting with each other. The next luncheon is on Friday, Feb. 22, at 12:15 p.m. Lunch will be served in the upstairs lobby of the Searsmont Community Center, and coffee will be served in the library following lunch with music, games, puzzles and good conversation. The event is free, and all are welcome to attend.
