Library Stories and Testimonials from the Wells Public Library
New In Town By Kathleen Sprout
I arrived in Wells from Arizona in August of 2011. I was 80 years old, had recently been widowed and decided to try to fin a small town in Maine where I could walk to the beach and see the ocean in winter.
My laptop got broken in the move so I needed to use the computers at the library. My skills at accessing the internet were limited, but the staff there provided me with their expert and willing assistance so that I was able to work through selling my Arizona property and managing my new life style.
From answering my many questions about Maine and Wells in particular, to guiding my reading choices, the library then introduced a Knit and Crochet group. I had begun volunteering at the Elementary School Tuesdays through Thursday so a Friday group fit my schedule perfectly. Soon, Friday became special as having a group of individuals to visit with and maybe shop and have lunch with, my life in Wells has become a fufilled and happy one.
So yes! Having a library has made a real difference in my life!! Thank you!!
