"A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face... one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy."

—Charles Langbridge Morgan

 Come join us for READING WITH ELLIE MAE STORY HOUR  on Wednesdays, 11:00-12:00


Summer Reading

Every Hero

The Library offers and annual, 6-week program of events open to all children in the community.  With a focus on reading, we host a weekly "party" on a different theme, as well as invite different performers to come and entertain.  And of course, everyone has an opportunity to read for prizes.  See below for the full schedule.


Schedule of Events



Cumberland County Public Schools have a separate requirement for students to read and complete required projects.  The Cumberland County Public Library does its best to provide copies of the books on the school lists, except where titles are out of print or otherwise unavailable.  Library copies of the books on the Cumberland summer reading lists are marked with a special spine label and can be checked-out for 3-weeks at a time.  They cannot be renewed.
