Blue Hill Public Library

The public is invited to explore popular self-help books in a new book group, “Shelf-Care”, sponsored by Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital and Blue Hill Public Library. The group will meet at the library on the second Tuesday of the month, from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, with the first meeting on March 12th. The group will be led by licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) Dede Ragot, and Patty Bergstrom.

March’s book will be The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning: How to Free Yourself and Your Family from a Lifetime of Clutter, by Margareta Magnusson. The author uses Scandinavian humor and wisdom, and instructs readers to “embrace minimalism.” According to the publisher, “her radical and joyous method for putting things in order helps families broach sensitive conversations, and makes the process uplifting rather than overwhelming.”

Patty Bergstrom, LCSW, is a Behavioral Health Provider at Northern Light Health Blue Hill Primary Care. Dede Ragot, LCSW, is a Clinical Social Worker with Northern Light Home Care and Hospice for the past 5 years. Both are avid readers and enjoy discussion groups and learning from others.

This group is free and open to everyone. Copies of the book will be available to check out in advance at the library. For more information, contact the library at 374-5515.
