Summer Events

Reading Together, June 13, July 25 & August 15 @ 2pm

Do you enjoy reading to others? Miss storytime? Would you like to listen to children read? Join this drop-in program, meet some new friends, and do some reading together. For all ages, children must be accompanied by their grown up at all times.

Death Cafe: Eat Cake, Talk Death, Live Better, June 15 @ 6pm & June 24 @ 10am

Join hosts Martha Hill and Ruth Ann Specht for a Death Cafe. At a Death Cafe people gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is to increase awareness of death with a view of helping people make the most of their finite lives. This is a small group discussion with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief or counseling session. The cafe is an accessible, respectful and confidential space. We hope you will join us!

The Reading Group, June 20 & August 1 @ 6pm

Join us for The Reading Group! We will either sit outside or inside depending on the weather and read quietly. Enjoy the company, and your own space at the same time. For ages 17+

Environment Discussion Group with Dana Cary, every 4th Thursday @ 4pm

How do we cope? Shouldn’t we be talking more about issues, developments, changes, plans, fears, and empathy? Join this open discussion group, which will utilize selected recent publications to enhance discussion of our environmental concerns.

Bowdoin Community Concert, July 11 @ 2pm

We’re excited to welcome back the students of the Bowdoin International Music Festival for a free concert! The Bowdoin Festival’s community concert series presents gifted classical musicians from around the world performing solo and chamber music in non-traditional venues.
