Meet the New Children’s Librarian for Wiscasset Public Library

Hi, my name is Laurie Ridgway, or Ms. Laurie to the younger set. This October I began my new job in Maine but before this I was a librarian on the eastern shores of Long Island, New York. There, I was working with teens but now I am looking forward to meeting the local Wiscasset young people. I cannot wait for this bright, big, children’s room to be filled with the sound of excited readers.

Recently my husband retired, sold his locksmith business, and moved to our house in Woolwich. We wanted to live here because it is beautiful and quiet and we have family in the area. But unlike my husband I am not ready to retire! (I must be too young.)

Besides working with children I am an avid reader, love the outdoors, the ocean, and gardening. While inside I quilt, knit, and work the Sunday crossword. I grew up in rural, upstate New York and find Maine feels like home to me. Come in and say hello, I would love to meet all of you.
