    Friends of Rockland Library Annual Book, Plant, and Bake Sale

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    It’s time for the annual book, plant, and bake sale at the Rockland Public Library! There will be Friends Early Bird shopping starting at 8 AM (join or renew at the door). Sponsored by the Friends of RPL, this is our biggest book sale of the year, held in the Community Room of the library. Books have been collected all year in preparation for this event. There is quite a diverse selection, with something for everyone. We have an especially well treasured, large collection of high quality sci-fi this year. We’ve also set aside some book treasures on a special shelf in the Book Stop, books which we have previously sold online, for your perusal. Come check it all out!

    The plant sale is held on the lawn of the Library. Generous donations from community gardeners include a rich selection of all kinds of plants. So far this year, there is a small selection of Barth day lilies, other lovely day lilies, peonies, along with a assortment of irises, hostas, lupines, lamb’s ears, raspberries, tomatoes, lilacs, and more. Remember, there is always room in your garden for an extra plant or two. Or ten.

    As always, the Book and Plant Sale is complimented by the bake sale. Prepared by Rockland Public Library volunteers, there will be a selection of baked goods: pies, cakes, breads, cookies, and more. All proceeds benefit the Library.

    If you would like more information, contact friendsofrocklandpubliclibrary@gmail.com or Rebecca Albright: 207-975-3946. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, rain or shine!

    Author Talk: Elizabeth Garber- Implosion: A Memoir of an Architect’s Daughter

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Elizabeth Garber

    In this powerful memoir, Elizabeth Garber describes her father, visionary architect Woodie Garber’s deepening mental illness, the destruction of her family, and her own slow healing from his abuse. Beautifully written and heartbreaking, it is also a survivor’s story—about a young woman trying to rescue her family and herself. Now a mother and a healer, Garber’s story offers the hope that we can process trauma and move on, that we can each become the architects of our own lives.

    Preview Screening: Chasing the Moon

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Catch a sneak peek of Chasing the Moon, which will premiere on PBS’ American Experience on July 8. “Chasing the Moon,” a film by Robert Stone, re-imagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The Library will screen the 38 min. 13 sec. clip “The Giant Leap.” Following the clip, there will be an informal discussion and the opportunity to share moon landing reminiscences.

    In mid-July 1969, crowds flooded Cocoa Beach in anticipation of the historic launch. Camped out along the beach and gathered in cars, spectators endured the blistering heat in anticipation of the impending launch. At the same time, civil rights leader Robert Abernathy led a peaceful protest, criticizing the priorities of the federal government. Then head of NASA Thomas Pain received them warmly, noting, “We would like to see you hitch your wagons to our rockets” in making their concerns heard by a national audience. Pain invited Abernathy to the launch site, and the protesters joined the thousands of Americans gathered to see the Saturn V launch Apollo 11 into the atmosphere.

    On July 20, 1969, the biggest television audience in world history tuned in to watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon’s surface. The relationship between the press, Hollywood, and NASA reached its zenith as broadcasters produced the first truly global live television experience of the landing. CBS News Director Joel Banow recounts how CBS News even hired a Hollywood special effects wiz to create simulations of the journey so that they would have something to televise until Armstrong and Aldrin were actually on the moon.

    Though these first stages of the landing couldn’t be seen live on earth, the Apollo 11 crew proceeded with the difficult undocking and landing maneuvers that should place them safely on the lunar surface. Audiences watched simulations and listened to audio coverage with baited breath as Armstrong delicately maneuvered the lunar module only to discover the landing site was in fact a football-field sized crater, forcing Armstrong to hover the craft and look for a new site with a mere thirty seconds of fuel. At last, audiences heard the triumphant words, “the Eagle has landed.” Mission control responded, “You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue – we’re breathing again.”

    German Prisoners of War in Maine: From Foe to Friend A First Person presentation by Hank Lunn

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    “From Foe to Friend” is Hank Lunn’s personal story of what the experience was like to have German soldiers working on his family farm in Littleton, Aroostook County, Maine. In 1944, the U.S. Army Air Base in Houlton, Maine became the site of a Prisoner of War (POW) internment camp for German soldiers captured in North Africa and France. The POW’s could not be forced to work, but could volunteer. Those who wanted to work helped the local farmers harvest peas, pick potatoes and cut wood in the forest during winter. The prisoners were paid a dollar a day in scrip that they could spend at their post exchange for toiletries, tobacco, chocolate, even beer.

John has been collecting stories of prominent Rockland families, including Tolmans, Ulmers, Lindseys, Perrys, Gregorys, Birds, Berrys, Spears, Snows, Cobbs, Tillsons, Farnsworths, Farwells, Glovers, Kimballs, and others, to create a chronological history of the area. He details the rise of businesses and industries that created the strong economy that led to Rockland becoming the county seat, and the changes in those businesses that brought challenges and then further changes that led to the success of Rockland today. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs, maps, and art.

    Walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to meet at the Library every Wednesday morning to go on a 30 to 45 minute walk around town. Walks will be led by librarians and no walker will be left behind. Join us for some exercise and conversation. In case of inclement weather, we will walk indoors in the library. Bring a friend or make some new ones! The walking club is intended for adults; children and teens are welcome if accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Participants of this program will be asked to sign a waiver of liability.
