As anyone who has spent a summer at Pine Island knows, part of the magic of our camp experience involves leaving behind the amenities of modern life for six weeks. Having powered down their electronic devices for the summer, campers and staff spend rest hour and their down time writing letters, playing cards, and, of course, reading!
We endeavor to keep our library stocked with books catering to all interests and reading levels, including middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction, and a wide range of nonfiction related to camp life and the wider world.
In order to build our library collection and replace books worn down by years of page-turning, we have partnered with the independent bookstore Print in Portland, Maine to create a community page featuring our “wish list.”
This page offers members from our community the opportunity to purchase books that will be donated directly to our library. We look forward to seeing more happy readers on the island in 2023!
