Upcoming Events

Museum Passes: Looking to visit a museum, zoo, or park this summer? Thanks to generous funding from the Friends of the Westbrook Public Library, Museum Passes are available.

Outdoor Movie Nights and Movie-Related Fun at the Library: June is all about movies at the Library.
1. Outdoor Movie Nights at the Westbrook Public Library are back! Enjoy the music on the Town Green from 6 pm to 8 pm before heading over the Library’s back lawn at 8 pm for free snacks (while supplies last) and great movies (Encanto on June 10th, Grease on June 24th, Star Wars: A New Hope on July 15th, Hidden Figures on July 22nd, Mary Poppins on August 5th, and The Sandlot on August 19th). Movie-related crafts will be available before each movie.
2. Stop by the Library throughout the month of June to participate in the Movie Scavenger Hunt, while supplies last.
3. Answer weekly movie trivia to enter a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to the Marquee Cinemas at the Westbrook Outlets. The winner of the gift certificate will be announced on June 30th.

Story Time: June Story Times will be held on the following Wednesdays at 10 am: June 8, 15, 22, and 29. Let’s read, sing, and have fun together! We’ll meet outside, in front of the Library, if the weather permits. Otherwise, we will meet in the Children’s Room. Registration requested.

The Kindness Cookbook: Sharing food is often how people show that care for each other. Throughout Covid, one thing that we have heard so often has been how much people miss getting together and eating with others. The Westbrook Public Library is collecting recipes from community members to compile a Westbrook Kindness Cookbook. The cookbook will be printed and added to the Library’s collection. In addition, Library will be hosting an outdoor community potluck in August (exact date TBD) where free printed copies of the cookbook will be distributed. We have received an extension on printing the cookbooks so recipes may now be submitted until June 24th!

Lew Daniels Technology Center is open by appointment. Ask the library staff if you have questions about making appointments for LDTC services.
