It cannot be used for camping. There are some state parks that don’t accept the pass. Call or stop by the children’s room to learn more. The pass can be borrowed for one day.

International Tabletop Day of Gaming, April 28

Once a year when the first buds of spring begin to unfurl from their winter slumber, International Tabletop Day brings us back to the table to remind us why we play and to give thanks to those who make every roll of the dice exciting.

From the heaviest strategy game to the lightest party game, ITTD gives us a chance to celebrate those who bring their passions to the table. Everyone from the biggest publisher to the smallest developer let players explore new worlds and take on herculean tasks in little more than an hour. And when we find ourselves sitting in the winner’s circle, we know that it will be the makers of the games we love cheering us on.

Tabletop Day is also a day to celebrate those who come to the table in contest or cooperation. It is a time of friends tasked with war and strangers finding a common bond to survive through the next turn. We honor the communities that gather around the table, those who bring the winning spirit and sportsmanship to play with others.

We play not just against the board, but with others. Join us at the Auburn Public Library.

The Birds are Coming, April 23

The Auburn Public Library and the Stanton Bird Club  are partnering to celebrate the International Year of the Bird with a number of informational and fun programs.  This is a special partnership in that the Stanton Bird Club is also beginning its centennial celebration!

On April 23rd veteran bird watcher Tom Hayward will present a program at 6:00 p.m. entitled “The Birds Are Coming!” a look at what birds are returning to Maine this time of year and ways to make them feel welcome.

On May 5th, volunteers from the Stanton Bird Club will host a program for 6- to 12-year olds, “Bird’s Eye View.”  There will be fun hands-on activities to learn all about birds – nests, pecking for food, and more.  Programs will continue throughout the Summer and Fall, including “lunch and learns,” bird watching, and author visits.
