"School's Out!" Party
Bounce House Liability Waiver
On Tuesday, June 21 from 1:15 - 3:00, the Freedom Public Library is celebrating the beginning of summer vacation by hosting a "School's Out!" party complete with a bouncy house, crafts, giant bubbles, and make your own sundaes! Students can ride the bus directly to the library (pass required). Children and teens are encouraged to register for the library's summer reading program.
ATTENTION: In order for a child to be able to bounce in the bouncy house, a parent or legal guardian must sign a liability waiver and either bring it to the library or send it with the child. No one will be able to bounce without this signed waiver although they will still be welcome to participate in the rest of the activities. Click here for a copy of the waiver.

Featured Artist for May and June
The Watercolors of Kit Linnell
Kit Linnell wanted to become an artist since the age of 5 years old, when she saw her grandfather painting landscapes. She was enthralled with the idea that a person could create such beauty and has tried to live up to that ideal ever since. She honed her skills in college, graduating with a BA in Fine Arts. Her primary medium is watercolor, painting Maine landscapes, buildings and antique objects. She currently shows her work in Gallery 302 in Bridgton, Maine and also participates in summer art festivals throughout the state. Retirement has given her the opportunity to explore her passion full time. She lives and works in Hiram, Maine.
