Millay Society of the Camden Public Library

View and print the PDF brochure.

The Millay Society recognizes individuals and businesses who support the future of the library with minimum unrestricted donations of $1,200 per year. These donors will take up the mission of ensuring a solid base of support for continual improvement of library collections, programs, and the grounds of our Harbor Park and Amphitheatre.

The Millay Society is named in honor of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950). Millay, raised in Camden, was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in poetry. Her life and her poetry are celebrated examples of freedom and individualism. Millay was committed to intellectual pursuits and the liberation of ideas – ideals kept alive at the Camden Public Library.

The Camden Public Library is pleased to include in the Millay Society individuals who provide support as follows:

  • Founder ($1,200 – $2,499)
  • Literary Fellow ($2,500 – $4,999)
  • Renascence Associate ($5,000 – $9,999)
  • Poet Laureate ($10,000 – $24,999)
  • Chairman’s Circle ($25,000 and above)

Members of the Millay Society receive a monthly newsletter and special mailings about library events. In addition, Millay Society members are invited to an annual event to celebrate the accomplishments of the Camden Public Library and plan for its continued growth and community responsiveness

Most importantly, Millay Society members will have the benefit of knowing that they are supporting the Camden Public Library in a fashion that will ensure its continued place as a cultural and intellectual center of mid-coast Maine.

To become a Millay Society member you may donate $1,200 or more online, or you can contact Library Director, Nikki Maounis, directly.
