It’s time for the faeries to return to Maine. Build a faerie house to welcome them back. Faeries love the outside, so Kennebunk Free Library encourages the use of natural materials when building a house.

Starting April 5, participants can pick up a grab-and-go bag with faerie house building materials at Kennebunk Free Library. Courtesy photo

Materials such as bark, sticks, leaves and stones. Starting April 5, participants can pick up a grab-and-go bag with some faerie house building materials to get started while supplies last.

After building a faerie house, participants are encouraged to take photos. Send the library at least three pictures of the faerie house from different angles and give the house a name. The Seacoast Garden Club will give each house a title, and the library will create certificates.

With permission, the library will also post the photos on its social media pages for everyone to see. Send information to [email protected] Participants can send pictures anytime in April, but to receive a certificate, the photos should be sent by April 27.

Museum robot ready to roll

There is now a robot at the Brick Store Museum. After a crowdfunding effort to bring a telepresence robot to the museum, the new technology will soon be ready for remote visitors to reserve the robot and drive it around the museum’s exhibits with the use of arrow keys on a keyboard.

Reservations for the robot will begin at the end of April. More information on how to reserve the robot can be found on the museum’s Digital Learning Center at www.brickstoremuseum.org.

The museum has also built a brand-new Museum Members’ Portal on its website, which offers recorded lectures and fun resources to museum members, including the popular Southern Maine Archaeology Panel Discussion, recorded in March. To become a member of the museum to support its work in history and culture education in the community, visit www.brickstoremuseum.org.

As the local economy reopens, the museum is seeking volunteers. With so many projects going on, the museum’s small staff of two full-time professionals and two part-time support staff always need community support. Volunteer opportunities include gardening, welcoming visitors, guiding tours, teaching and transcribing historic documents. Those interested can visit the museum’s website or email [email protected]

The museum’s most recent episode of its The Brick podcast features a Citizen Spotlight interview with the Rev. Lara Campbell, minister of First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Kennebunk.

To visit the museum in-person, visitors are required to make a timed reservation through the museum’s online reservation system. This helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, while allowing the galleries to remain open to the public. Visitors must have a valid reservation time (through the museum’s website) to enter the buildings.
