"It is better to be a young June bug than an old bird of paradise."
Welcome back to our summer patrons! We always enjoy seeing the return of seasonal residents so please come in and say hello!! We officially say goodbye to Spring later this month so here is a poem about the arrival of Spring written by a talented young patron. Some of us were wondering a couple months ago if Spring would ever arrive!

Voting Down the Rose is a lively account of Maine native Florence Brooks Whitehouse's efforts to win women voting rights in the decisive final years of the campaign, 1914-1920. Considered radical for picketing the White House, Florence helped win women suffrage against a backdrop of conservative views of women's roles, political intrigues, WWI, and the 1918 influenza epidemic.
Author Anne Gass is Florence Brooks Whitehouse's great-granddaughter. come in for some refreshments and a discussion of Maine's part in winning the vote for women!
Brought to you by the Maine Humanities Council, in partnership with Naples Public Library, we are excited to unveil 2018 summer humanities reading. Our facilitator this year will be Professor Libby Bischof, Ph.D., history expert, professor, collector & curator of The Maine Postcard Project. Join our discussions delving into critical social, economic & cultural themes surrounding the late 1800s, as time turned toward the 20th century. Landmarks once familiar to our area hail from this era, and this series will culminate with a trip to Poland Springs Historical Society. Our current political climate and desire to connect to & learn from the past mesh with these historical accounts.
Meetings alternate between CPL and NPL, at 940 Roosevelt Trail and copies of the 5 books in the series are available at both libraries.
The series will begin at the culmination of the era in Chicago, the city that most epitomized the dramatic transformations of the age. The Devil and the White City by Erik Larson has garnered much popular attention and critical acclaim since its publication in 2003. The book juxtaposes the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 against a series of mysterious disappearances and salacious murders that took place in the Windy City around the same time.
Celebrate the first day of the summer with a free movie based on an award winning classic!

A Visit from The Bugmobile!
Chewonki's "Bugmobile" transports the world of arthropods-insects and their relatives-into the library.
Using models, costumes, and live specimens, we explain the unique characteristics of four major groups of arthropods. Our live "bug" species will introduce you to some of the fascinating adaptations essential for survival, such as mimicry, camouflage, armor, and the use of venom.
