Join us for Readers’ Day on November 4th! In conjunction with the Penobscot Valley Senior College three of our reference librarians will have programs throughout the day to discuss nonfiction, mysteries, literary fiction, how to use our ebooks and online magazines, and searching for your next favorite book on the internet.

You can find many of the book lists for the books discussed on Readers' Day here.
