On May 1, 2014, libraries across Maine will partner with local lawyers to speak with library patrons about the challenges that arise when an individual is faced with a legal problem. Volunteer lawyers will provide information on how to access civil legal resources and will be available for a
brief consultation for attendees.

MAINE AUTHOR, GAIL ROWE, IS MAY'S SPEAKER
The Friends of the Library and the Waldoborough Historical Society will co-host a program at the library featuring Gail Rowe and her book, "The Roots of a Family - Life in Rural Maine" on Weds. May 7, at 7:00 p.m.. Refreshments will be served at 6:45 p.m.
Gail Anne Rowe was born and raised in Maine and graduated from Colby College in 1972 followed by a Master's Degree from the University of Maine. After 27 years of teaching at Southern Maine Community College, she retired in 2003. Retirement has included traveling with her husband in Southeast Asia, gardening at home in Southern Maine and writing her book.
"The Roots of a Family - Life in Rural Maine" was originally written for her family, but after receiving encouraging and positive reviews from non-family members, Rowe decided to self-publish the book at TheBookPatch.com. The success of the book has led to invitations to speak at eleven libraries and historical societies plus at Penobscot Valley Senior College. Her book is also being used as a text in a history class at Brewer High School.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear more about how three remarkable families endured life in Maine during the Depression and World War II. Learn of the importance of knowing and sharing one's own family history. Copies of Rowe's book will be available for purchase - cash or checks only, please.
Mon. & Thu. 12-7
Wed. & Fri. 10-5
Closed Tue. & Sun.
