     The Children's Room



Addison West stands with the library’s new scarecrow creations. Shawna and Devon Roy get help from Graham Burke putting the final touches on our friendly scarecrow.  All the children pose with our new scarecrow friends.

 Everyone was outside enjoying the fall fresh air again at the Wiscasset Public Library this week for Story Hour. Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant and Otis and the Scarecrow by Loren Long inspired us to build our very own scarecrows next to the library’s garden.  With recycled wood frames, second hand clothing and a few straw hats, the children created two friendly scarecrows by stuffing the clothes with the abundant leaves that have fallen in the library’s back yard.  Afterwards, we all jumped and played in the left over leaves and colored pictures of scarecrows to take home.

Story Hour is on Thursdays at 10:30 at the Wiscasset Public Library Children’s Room located at 21 High Street, Wiscasset, Maine. 



Ashley and Gabe Wood arrive at the Northern Stars finale dressed in their FIZZ, BOOM, READ T-shirts!

Over eighty-five participants came to enjoy the 2014 Summer Reading Program finale with Northern Stars traveling Planetarium last Friday.... We were all able to gather under the starlit sky in the inflatable dome and learn of constellations, Mars and Saturn, and even other nearby galaxies! John Meader of Northern Stars did a wonderful job narrating the changing night sky patterns and urges everyone to get outside in the evening and star-gaze….you never know what you will discover. Don’t forget the Wiscasset Public Library has a telescope available to be loaned out on a weekly basis thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
