Our discussion of April's book, Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier, resulted in a consensus of satisfied readers, although most members preferred The Girl with the Pearl Earring. Remarkable Creatures was described as "An excellent portrait of early female fossil hunters in the 1800's". Recommended!
The book for May is The Submission, by Amy Waldman. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk.

The always-popular Chewonki Foundation will return to kick off our Summer Reading Program with a live animal presentation. In this program, we will dive right into the dual life of our Maine amphibians by listening to frog calls and examining the lives of salamanders and newts. Next, we will explore our scaly reptiles found in Maine and how they compare to their amphibian friends. With slides, hands-on activities and three live animals, this free, interactive program is sure to entertain and educate kids of all ages. Refreshments. Sponsored by the Friends of Hubbard Free Library.
A reminder that patrons may now request museum passes for the Children's Discovery Museum in Augusta and the Maine State Museum, also in Augusta. Call, or come into, the library for more details. Passes are sponsored by the Friends of Hubbard Free Library.
