Build A Better World- Save the Bees!
Children's Garden Project with Jenn Tyler

Little Green Fingers, gardening club for kids continues this month. Our aim is to encourage children to learn basic gardening skills through crafts and games in our own Children’s Garden located adjacent to the Children’s Room. Jenn Tyler will be back with stories, songs, activities and a bit of honey tasting. Kids will learn how important bees are to our world and what they can do to save them.

Maine Film Premiere: Tribal Justice

In this film, two Native American judges reach back to traditional concepts of justice in order to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety for their communities, and create a more positive future for youth. By addressing the root causes of crime, they are modeling restorative systems that are working. Mainstream courts across the country begin to take notice.
