Albion Neighborhood News, Week of August 18, 2016

by Mary Lee Rounds

The end of the Summer Reading Program will be celebrated with a story, music, ice cream party at the library on Tuesday, August 23, at 2 p.m.

Special guest will be Deanna Sawtelle playing the guitar.

Children have been reading and logging the books they have read.      The Albion Public Library has received  a copy of Hussey Road Neighborhood: Albion Corner & Environs 1850-1950.  This has been compiled and composed by former Albion resident, Alice McKiel Hyerstay.

This is a very complete study of the Hussey Road neighborhood, the people and properties, over a period of 100 years.

At the request of Mrs. Hyerstay, the material may not be removed from the library.  Pages may, however, be copied.

I think you will enjoy it!  Look for it in the MAINE collection.

A reminder for those who order books through  Please type Amazon Smile Program in the search bar when you open Amazon, then select Albion Public Library as your choice (or choose any worthy charity).  Whenever you start from Amazon Smile, the library will receive a donation at no cost to you.

The library is truly grateful for the support given annually by the town and its generous friends.

Thank you to whomever mowed the lawn at the prior Maxine Jones house. Many people expressed concern over how “seedy” the place was beginning to look.  It may seem like a small thing, but people notice.

We finally have rain, a little late for many gardens, and Fall is on its way.  Children in some other states  have already started school.

Please,  those of you who pass against the lines, especially on the Albion to Benton Road,  remember, soon the children will be standing out waiting for the buses.  If you don’t care about yourself being in the wrong lane with oncoming traffic, think of the children.  They are out there early many days.


Responsible journalism is hard work!
It is also expensive!
