Augusta, Maine - The first-ever pie sale held at Lithgow Public Library on January 23rd -- which was National Pie Day -- was an overwhelming success.   Several dozen pies were made and donated by staff and community members, raising $900 for the Friends of Lithgow Library’s Capital Campaign to renovate and expand the historic building.

      “It was wonderful to see a groundswell of support for Lithgow Library from the community, Augusta businesses, patrons and staff,” said Adult Services Librarian Shelby Monroe.  “People came together that day to buy a pie or two and share a piece of the bright future of Lithgow Library.”

      Along with community members and library staff who baked pies for the sale, the Friends of Lithgow Library thank the Downtown Diner in Augusta, Marie’s Whole Foods in Readfield, and Caprara’s Food Service Equipment in Winthrop for their generous donations.    

      Another benefit pie sale is planned for the spring, with details to be announced.

    Lithgow Library is located at 45 Winthrop Street in Augusta.  For more information, call the library at 626-2415 or visit
