Jump Start the Holiday Season!!!

Join us at 3 pm Sunday December 4th at the library with Shannon Butler, author of "All is Calm: A Maine Christmas Reader" for some tales and cheer.  This book was awarded the Maine Writers and Publishers Award for Anthologies in 2020.  Then Carmel's own Gordon Nute and guitarist Debbie Falkenburg will entertain us with some holiday songs and lead us in caroling.  After the tree is lit, follow the candles next door to the Carmel Historical Society for cocoa and cookies.
