Starting on Friday, May 18, and continuing until Saturday, May 26, Millinocket Memorial Library volunteers will take to the streets to share their exciting story about the Future Library Project, an effort to transform a 1963 library into a state-of-the-art facility. Dozens of volunteers will break into teams and spread out around town to distribute project brochures, campaign information, and a personal invitation for everyone to attend a kick-off celebration at the library on May 26, from 11AM-1PM.

“We are absolutely thrilled to talk about the work we are doing at the library. We feel that this project is something that everyone in the community can participate in and should be proud of,” says Library Director Matt DeLaney. “It represents an enormous investment in our town, our residents, our kids, and our future. For the past two years, the library has been energized by a growing volunteer team, so it is fitting that those volunteers will be taking to the streets to connect with neighbors and share the story of the Future Library Project.”

The Future Library Project Kick-Off Celebration will take place Saturday, May 26, from 11AM to 1PM at the library at 5 Maine Ave, Millinocket. The library invites friends and neighbors to join together to learn more about the Future Library Project, meet the project team, and enjoy delicious food, live music, and the company of friends and neighbors. Remarks by library representatives and supporters will begin at 11:30, and fun activities for all ages, including face-painting and seed-planting, will take place throughout the celebration. Included in the festivities will be the Friends of Millinocket Memorial Library Annual Plant Sale from 9AM to 2PM at the library.
