January Weather

January has been especially cold and snowy this year. The Bremen Library has been closed on two days due to winter snow storms that closed the local schools. The policy of the library is to remain closed on days that the schools don't open because of weather. The feeling is that if the schools are closed because the roads are too dangerous for school buses, then maybe it would be wise for everyone to stay home. So when the forecast predicts the possibility of snowy weather, stock up on reading materials before hand.

Despite winter weather woes, there was a good turnout for the library program about Japanese gardens on January 8. The next program will be in February when Chewonki presents a program about birds of prey. More information will be coming as we get into February.

The book group meets again on Monday Feb. 14 to discuss Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen. Reading about life in Africa is a nice armchair escape from the snowbanks of Maine. Copies of the book are available to borrow from the library. The group is open to the public.
