She told us the new improved library at Winthrop and Oak street will reopen in 2016 with a new main entrance facing Oak Street.  It will include a new community room which will seat up to 100.

She said one of the highlights will be an original Stained Glass Window from the old Augusta railroad station, made possible with a donation from Kennebec Savings Bank.  The new library will be approximately 31-thousand square feet compared to the existing one at 14,500.

..  Milt explained emphatically he was not sitting at the head table purely in
the interest of enhancing his chances of winning something, but simply to
hear the speakers better.  Then he went ahead and won the brunch
certificate.

Bob Stillwell of the Maine State Radon Program told members about the dangers or Radon and how the state is trying to protect homeowners and tenants.

The State advises you to take action to reduce the radon level in your home’s indoor air at 4 pCi/L, but consider reducing levels between 2 and 4 pCi/L. The current advisory level for radon in your home’s water supply is 4,000 pCi/L. At levels of 4,000 pCi/L or higher you should consider action beginning with reviewing your total radon risk (from radon in air and water). As your radon level in water gets closer to 10,000 pCi/L, you need to more strongly consider installing treatment.
