The Centennial Renovation capital campaign is underway!

Bill Nemitz: Town of Millinocket reinvents itself – and its Memorial Library

Construction of the new building will begin Summer 2019, with expected completion in early 2020. As we celebrate our centennial year, this building renovation will transform the Millinocket Memorial Library into a state-of-the-art regional center of knowledge and discovery.

The Library Centennial Renovation is a bold and visionary $1.25 million building renovation to revamp a mid-20th century building into a flexible, future-proof facility that will serve a wide variety of functions for our community.
This project began in 2017 when we were awarded a major grant from the Next Generation Foundation for the “Future Library Project”, a project where we re-imagined the future of our library and our region. As we made plans for a new building, we began working with new partners – foundations, businesses, and individuals – and we have been humbled by the support that has been shown so far.
