Ellsworth Public Library

The NEA Big Read: Ellsworth events originally planned to take place from April 25-June 6 have been postponed until Fall 2020. We will keep you posted as we figure out the details and choose the exact timeframe for these programs. Thank you for understanding! If you have any questions, please message Ellsworth Public Library or email us (info@ellsworthlibrary.net)

Here’s the good news: We’re able to offer a couple of the programs we had originally planned for the Big Read through online platforms this spring. Please check the Ellsworth Public Library page for more information coming soon!

The NEA Big Read is a series of community events focused around one book. This year, we’re reading the memoir Lab Girl by Hope Jahren.  Hope is a geobiologist who believes that anyone can be a scientist– all you need is curiosity and to be willing to experiment.   In this spirit, we’re encouraging people to get outside and explore their backyards by taking up gardening, participating in citizen science initiatives, or planting a tree.  We’re planning workshops, presentations, a keynote speech from Amy Stewart and more!  Check out the NEA Big Read: Ellsworth Facebook page for more information!
