Wells Public Library Board of Trustees Meeting
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Wells Public Library Board of Trustees is composed of nine officials elected by the residents of Wells. The Board serves as the governing body of the library for the public to whom the library belongs. As such the Board is delegated both legal and practical responsibilities which deal with the operation of the library. These delegated duties are a public trust. It is the obligation of each Trustee, therefore, to know the library, its basic mission, its strengths, and needs, and to plan for the library’s future. The Board’s single purpose, as advocates of the library, is to meet the needs of the community. Their meetings are open to the public and are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm via Zoom. Please email Cindy at cappleby@wellstown.org for your invitation to the meeting.

Wells Public Library Board of Trustees Meeting
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Wells Public Library Board of Trustees is composed of nine officials elected by the residents of Wells. The Board serves as the governing body of the library for the public to whom the library belongs. As such the Board is delegated both legal and practical responsibilities which deal with the operation of the library. These delegated duties are a public trust. It is the obligation of each Trustee, therefore, to know the library, its basic mission, its strengths, and needs, and to plan for the library’s future. The Board’s single purpose, as advocates of the library, is to meet the needs of the community. Their meetings are open to the public and are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm via Zoom. Please email Cindy at cappleby@wellstown.org for your invitation to the meeting.

Suffragettes in Corselettes
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes. The history of underwear reveals a lot about women’s changing roles in society – how we perceive ourselves, and how we’re viewed by others. The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist. Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely. Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920? Underwear matters. Please help the Wells Library welcome Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban as they help us uncover this “taboo” subject that has traditionally been omitted from history. This free event is sponsored by the Maine Public Library Fund.  For more information, please contact Stefanie Claydon at sclaydon@wellstown.org, or call the library at 207-646-8181
