We are a full service community library in the town of Bremen, Maine. We are open to the public to read and connect.
Please join us on Thursday, August 29, at 7:00 pm for a showing of the newly released 30-minute documentary on The Life and Legacy of Frances Perkins, produced by the Frances Perkins Center. Based on its Senior College course of several years, this program includes interviews with lecturers Leah Sprague, Christopher Breiseth, Charles Wyzanski and Sarah Peskin who cover her Maine Roots and early career, the woman behind the New Deal, the letters of Charles Wyzanski’s father, the Solicitor of the Labor Department in the New Deal, and jobs, infrastructure and Art in the New Deal.
Michael Chaney, Executive Director of the Frances Perkins Center since 2014, will be on hand to answer questions and participate in audience discussion. A companion traveling exhibit will be on display from Wednesday, August 21 through Thursday, August 29 at the Bremen Library.
Barbara Ross, author of the Maine Clambake Series will speak at the Library on Thursday, August 22nd at 7:00.
Ross is the author of seven Clambake Mysteries. The eighth, “Sealed Off”, will be released in December of this year. A new anthology, “Haunted House Murder”, will be released this month. Ross will speak about becoming a novelist later in life and how her series came to be.
Ross’ books have been nominated for multiple Agatha Awards for Best Contemporary Novel and have won the Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction. Ross and her husband live in Portland.
The event is free and all are welcome.
The Bremen Town Center Project Committee invites the public to walk the newly mowed paths and future play/recreation area on the Town property directly off the library parking lot. This will give the public an opportunity to experience where the paths and play/recreation area will likely be established in the future. Come one come all at your convenience!
