Owls Head library trustees make plans for book sale

OWLS HEAD — The board of trustees of the Owls Head Village Library Association met Monday night at the library. Mary Fales, vice president of the association, presided at the business session at which further plans were made for the book sale to be held Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Central School.

Used books are needed and these may be left at the library or picked up by calling any board member.

Trustees voted to amend the bylaws to increase the number of trustees from three to five. Action will be taken on the change at the annual meeting of the association set for 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 24, at the library. The library is now open from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

A work session has been set for 9 a.m. Thursday, June 6, for taking out books for the summer sale. Volunteers are needed.

Board members said they were sorry that Beth Seavey, who served as librarian Wednesday nights during the summer for many years, has decided not to do this any longer. Volunteers will be needed in order to keep the library open Wednesday nights as usual.

The season opened on May 8 with Katie McNeilly and Mary Dyer in attendance. Others who will fill in are Mary Fales, Elisabeth O’Brien, Jennie McNeilly, Katie McNeilly and Kay Dodge.

The trustees voiced appreciation to Virginia Morang for mowing near the library and to Francis Dyer who turned on the heating system each Saturday during the winter.

Serving as librarians during the period of January through April were Diane Dyar, Evelyn Ross, Eleanor Stanley, Norman Stanley, Robert Ehmann, Susan Cordero, Anna Jorgensen, Kay Dodge, Susan Dodge and Mary Dyer.
