The library has made tremendous progress this year! From an addition for a computer lab and accessible restroom to hundreds of new books, Berry Library has made huge strides toward becoming a another hub that Buxton can be proud of. 

A big thank you to all for the generous donations, grants, and book suggestions; these efforts combined create a library offering titles for everyone in our great community.

Discounted tickets for Maine Wildlife Park in Gray are available at Berry Library reducing the entry fee to $2.50 per person. 

Over 30 species of native Maine wildlife are on exhibit here at the park in natural settings. Most of our animals cannot be released back into the wild due to permanent injuries, habituation to humans, or were born in captivity. The park is open daily from mid April to November.

2014 events include:

Tuesday July 1st at the Old White Church on Salmon Falls Rd. in Bar Mills at 11:00am. 

Animals are an integral part of our environment. At times they even occupy the same spaces that we do, whether we want them to or not! Learning to live green includes learning to coexist with the animals that share our planet, in addition to making our planet a better place for humans to live. In this program we discuss the ecological benefits and potential risks associated with living in close proximity to some of these animals while observing up to three live examples of the invaders in question.

But even if Jeremy and his best friend, Slater, combined their allowances for a year, they still wouldn't have enough money for the cost of repairs.

New Fiction from Dean Koontz & Tess Gerritsen



Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, at least for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria, the Lady of the Bell. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.
