MARCH 2023

Dear Bremen Library Patrons,

Welcome, March, and all of its snow, slush, mud, winds, and small signs of spring! Lots to read this month, with a beautiful watercolor show by local artist Betsy Palmer hanging for the next four weeks in the gallery. We have an author visit on March 16 at 4pm - the info and Zoom link are below. The book is available in the library and very compelling - hope to see some of you on the Zoom screen! And, finally, a huge Thank You to Bangor Savings Bank for granting Bremen Library $2500 to purchase an AED for our building. An official check-giving presentation is scheduled for March 2 at 2pm, and I am beyond grateful to have the funds to acquire this very necessary piece of equipment for our community! Life is good.


Kristen Budlong, Director
