Upcoming Activities at the Bremen Library

The Bremen Library will be closed on Monday February 21 in honor of President's Day. On Wednesday February 23 we will be opening at 8:30 am for the first of 2 programs by the Chewonki Foundation about Birds of Prey. It is not uncommon to see hawks in trees along the roads waiting to catch a meal. If you have wondered how these majestic birds have adapted to survive in their environment this program will answer all your questions. There will be three live birds that you can see close up. The program begins at 9:00 with a second program at 10:30. Space is limited so come early. This is a perfect event for the school vacation week.

On Saturday March 5 we will present a program at 2:00 by art conservator Terry Marsh and furniture conservator Jon Brandon on caring for your treasures- whether paper or furniture. This will be an opportunity to learn from experts how to preserve your family heirlooms. The program is free and refreshments will be served.

There will be 2 sessions- at 9:00am and 10:30am. There will bring three live birds that were injured and are healed but cannot be released back to the wild.
