Dennysville’s Lincoln 

Memorial Library 

The Lincoln Memorial public library is providing guidance and forms for people applying for Unemployment Insurance through the Maine Department of Labor.  Computers at the library are available free of charge to the public to connect and submit these applications on-line.  Call or speak to a librarian during regular hours Monday evening from 4-7 p.m., Tuesday and Friday afternoons between 1:30 and 4 p.m., or email us at lincmem@lincolnd.lib.me.us .  Wireless internet is available through the library in Dennysville 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including from the comfort of your car in the parking lot.

Movie night at the library continues at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Fridays of each month, featuring a double header with the original version of "All Creatures Great and Small" (now ready for installment #5), and Mysteries by Request.  Up next, on April 13th,  is Agatha Christie’s “The Body in the Library" with sleuth Miss Marple, who once observed that life in small English village was sufficient to teach all there is to know about the human heart.  We’re planning for a Campion mystery on the 27th.

Books Added to the library’s collection:

Classics: 

“The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer

Religion: 

“The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to the Blessed Life” by Bruce Wilkinson

“Crazy for God” by Frank Schaeffer

“Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why” by Bart D. Ehrman

Books for Children

“Two Years Before the Mast” by Richard Henry Dana (abridged)

“Johnny the Clockmaker” Edward Ardizzone

“Pippi in the South Seas” by Astrid Lindgren

Residents of the town of Dennysville will be receiving in the mail a letter from the library board president concerning the financial needs of the library for the coming year.  It will mention the usual funding and what it covers, but also focuses particularly on some much-needed upkeep and improvement for the building itself, which belongs to the town.  These projects will improve the efficiency of the heating, the condition and safety of the porch and handicap access walkway, and even the appearance of this town landmark and public service building.   This Annual Town Library Appropriation makes possible matching funds from the County Commissioners, and is the key indicator and benchmark for all grant applications and future fundraising.
