Cathy Hazel Adams returns to the library on Wednesday, February 21 at 5:30 p.m. Adams will share additional information about how thoughts, feelings, and agendas form the blueprint from which individual and mass experiences are created and how quantum physics shows that consciousness really is the X-factor. Easy meditation techniques as well as time for questions will be part of the evening. If you were unable to attend the January program, plan to attend! Library programs are free and open to the public.

“Now That You Mention It” is a new novel by Kristan Higgins. One step forward was the scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a medical specialist. Two steps back was getting hit by a car and then hearing her boyfriend hit on a doctor when she thought she was dying. There’s only one place to land – home – but the tiny Maine community she left 15 years ago still holds her responsible for small town drama and big time disappointments. This book is also available as an eBook in the 3M Cloud Library, your library card number and PIN give you access!
