at 9:30 a.m. It will run for 8 consecutive weeks. To register please send an email to email@example.com we will send you the Zoom meeting login and password.
This is how Story Time will work—
Our children’s librarian, Miss Debby along with her assistant Greta,
will read a story, and then participants will be asked to read a book
or a section of a book to the group. This is optional but those who
read a grade level appropriate book get to participate in the prize program!

If we have a good response to Story Time we will add a Zoom Arts & Crafts program on Wednesday mornings. The craft materials will be provided by the library and after signing up, can be picked up curbside on Monday mornings.
The Children’s Program Volunteers hope that you visit the library when it reopens later this summer and take advantage of all we have to offer! Visit our website
John Bird to Present Rockland’s “Rise and Renewal” via ZOOM at the Cushing Public Library
Rockland used to smell, and now it’s the “Art Capital of Maine.” Maybe not in so many words, but John Bird’s book Rockland: Rise and Renewal entertainingly documents the history of the city that anchors the state’s formidable Midcoast. The Cushing Public Library will present an illustrated talk by Bird, a fifth-generation Rockland native, on Wednesday, August 19, at 6:30 p.m. via ZOOM.
It is free and open to the public. To register, call Wendy Roberts at 207-691-0833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bird’s beautifully produced book is the first comprehensive history of Rockland in more than 40 years, and a lot has happened here in those years. He documents how a small city can maintain its traditional economic health and become a cultural magnet as well, with particular attention to the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and the many galleries and artists that animate its creativity. He provides the stories behind the many names of institutions, industries and places that have created this vibrant community.
Bird is a graduate of Rockland High School and Bowdoin College and a retired educator.
