“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”
Hope Library's Mission Statement
The mission of the Hope Library is to provide the community with a resource of books, programs, and other library services to meet their cultural, educational, informational, and recreational needs. The Hope Library functions in a communal, quiet fashion
that is comfortable in our very small, rural town.
Author Meredith Hall is reading from her new novel, "Beneficence,"
Thursday, Oct. 15, at 7 p.m.
"Beneficence" is about the beautiful, and sometimes cruel, life of
a Maine family and the dairy farm they tend.
Those interested in attending this event should email the Hope Library at email@example.com for the Zoom meeting number and password.
The novel is told from three points of view (that of Doris Senter, her husband Tup, and their daughter Dodie), divided into four parts (Before, During, After, and Here), and spanning a period of eighteen years (1947 to 1965). According to reviews, Beneficence “brims with interior monologue and quiet farm life.”
