I live in the Bangor Daily News ciruclation area and am always impressed at the amount of news from and about libraries that appears each week. Here are two recent examples from the BDN:
The Stewart Public Library in Corinna is offering a series of concerts this summer on the library lawn starting on June 14 and ending on Augusta 16. (these are Thursdays)
The Vose Library in Union has received $50,000 from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation toward construction of a new building. The building campaign has raised over $250,000 in the past six years. The design for their new building is energy efficient and will “benefit from passive solar gain offered by the library’s site” as well as an outdoor amphitheater for children’s programs. A nature trail is also planned. An Art and Wine Tour is planned to help raise funds this summer. Amazing plans for the future are being made by many Maine libraries!
