We have a wide variety of materials to support both your personal and professional interests, whether that is popular reading, genealogy, language learning, bird-watching, car repair, hobbies and crafts, newspapers or something else! Our special collections are also open to the community, including the Maine Women Writers Collection and art galleries on both campuses. Come discover these resources, along with a tour of the library, and get the most out of this benefit.
