Life of the Library

What’s new?


Maine Music

If you have been to the Main Library lately, you may have noticed a few changes in where items are located. One of the bigger changes has been the bringing down of the CD collection to the lower level. Along with moving things around, we have separated out MAINE MUSIC! We are celebrating the talented musicians who live and work in our great state!

Now if you search in our online catalog for “local music,” you will find a listing of our holdings. We are continuing to update our collection with new local artists, so keep checking back for new titles!

In the mean time, stop by the lower level and check out a few local artists like the great Samuel James, fan favoriteĀ Don Campbell, and Portland SupergroupĀ Covered in Bees!

Look for the CDs with the little Maine flag sticker and discover something new, something local!
