“Come From Away,” a novel  set on the Fundy Isles in the 1950’s, will be introduced along with readings by local author Joseph Gough at the Library on Saturday, June 29th, 2:30PM.

First published in 1981, “Come From Away” received rave reviews in Canada. The Toronto Globe and Mail reported that “beyond all doubt , it’s the most impressive novel of the season, even if we don’t know who wrote it.” The unknown author using the pseudonym Joseph Green was Joseph Gough, who was born in Lubec, grew up on Campobello, and has recently reissued the book. He will explain the name mystery at the library reading.

After high school on Campobello, Gough spent four years in the U.S. Coast Guard and returned to Canada for a career including comedy writing and journalism but mainly public service in the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. He is also the author of “Managing Canada’s Fisheries: From Early Days to the Year 2000” and “The Citadel Summit,” a novel of political satire. He and Marie McCormack, his wife now divide their time between Ottawa and Campobello. Signed copies of “Come From Away” will be available at the program.

Seed Library

The Seed Library is gearing up for the second growing season; sponsored again by the Lubec Memorial Library, the Lubec Garden Club and the Lubec Community Outreach Center.  Thanks to generous donors we are continuing the gardening tradition here in Lubec.  We have seeds for every style of garden: organic, vegetable, herb, or flower.  We will be filling varieties as we receive them.  Stop in often to see what’s available. If you have a special request let us know and we can try to find it for you. And if you have some seeds to donate, we will be happy to use them.
The Seed Library is located inside the Lubec Memorial Library near the service desk.
The seeds are arranged alphabetically.  We have seed envelopes and other supplies so that you can take just a few seeds, several seeds or an entire pack depending on your needs.  Start your garden here at the library! 
“Think small – plant tiny seeds in the small space you are given – you can change the world – or at least your view of it.”
