“Discover History” Month

Join us in October as we pay some extra attention to one of our favorite subjects: HISTORY! We’re excited to roll out a brand new exhibit in the library’s Picker Room Gallery that explores the background and significance of the landscape design of Camden’s Harbor Park and Village Green. Plus, we’ll be hosting a series of fascinating and engaging programs all month long on Zoom. From Maine’s Black History to Maine’s Maritime History, and from quilting to silent films — whatever your interests are, we have you covered!
