Bands for Books is less than two weeks away! Have you reserved your tickets? We hope you will join us on Labor Day, September 6 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Seafield Farm in Wiscasset. This annual fundraiser for Wiscasset Public Library is a wonderful community celebration.

The Friends of WPL are truly grateful for the backing this event has received. It takes a “prettiest little village” to put on Band for Books, and we couldn’t do it without our amazing volunteers, sponsors, and community partners. Thank you all!

In her novel News of the World, author Paulette Jiles writes of the “crossroads of civilization, refuge of all the arts against the ravages of time.” It’s a perfect description of America’s libraries. Our historic library has been a vibrant part of our town for more than 200 years. Incorporated as a nonprofit organization, WPL depends on the support of the constituents it serves. Show your support! We encourage you to thank the individuals and establishments that have provided financial sponsorship. Patronize the local businesses that have contributed to our Silent Auction. Thriving businesses, involved citizens, and a vital library combine to make Wiscasset an exceptional community.

Email the Friends at to reserve your tickets at the advance purchase price. If you’d prefer to buy your tickets now, they are available at the library or at our Wiscasset Art Walk (August 26) ticket table, near the In The Clover shop. Advance purchase tickets are $20; at the door, $25.
