WISCASSET — The Wiscasset Library Board of Trustees recently announced the completion of a winding brick path joining the brick patio on the library’s lower level with the sidewalk. J and H Landscaping built the path.

Its installation was made possible by a vote of the board and the donation of a trustee.

The new pathway already has a number of inscribed bricks in it — ones that have been waiting to be installed, and it offers the opportunity to place many more inscribed bricks. The bricks are a way to memorialize a loved one who has passed on, or to pay tribute to a special person. They also help raise funds for the library as each brick is sold for more than it costs.

Inscribed 4-by-8-inch bricks cost $50 each. Inscribed 8-by-8-inch bricks cost $100 each, and bricks with artwork on them, such as a child’s hand print, cost $200.

The pathway also will serve to welcome Wiscasset residents and visitors to the library’s Used Book Room and to the outside patio where patrons can sit quietly and read, or chat with friends.

To order a brick, visit the library at 21 High St., with payment and fill out a form with a desired inscription.
