The Woolwich Warrior Challenge PTA fundraiser has reached the team goal of $12,000. As a reward for reaching this goal as a school, Mr. Libby will be spending a day working on the roof. Let’s all hope for good weather!

We have met our goal of $10,000 (look for an awesome morning arrival surprise soon!) AND we are sooooo close to meeting our $12,000 goal!

We are still looking for Adopt a Classroom sponsors! When you adopt a classroom you provide all the funds we need to give our prizes and incentives, reward classrooms for meeting goals, pay for our online fundraising platform AND put on the big event at the end of our pledge period!

This year, the Teen Library Council of Patten Free Library is teaming up with the Solar Star Masonic Lodge to create the creepiest haunted house tour ever. On Sunday, October 27, from 6-9 p.m., the Solar Star Lodge will open its doors at 968 Washington Street for the event. The Teen Library Council (including Woolwich residents Lora LaRochelle, Lucas Blaiklock, Oscar Hennin, Natalie Emmerson, Nina Ryan) will stage 20-minute guided tours of the “Plague House” for all who dare to cross the threshold. Three floors of horror! You can reserve a tour time through the Information Desk at the Library (443-5141, ext. 12, or pflreference@patten.lib.me.us) We can accommodate tour groups of up to five people per tour. Recommended for middle school and up.
