Maine Historical Society and Maine State Library are pleased to share the Maine Libraries/Maine Libraries Toolkit. This toolkit is part of a statewide campaign, supported by the Institute of Museum & Library Services, designed to promote the vital role that libraries can play in helping their communities engage Maine history.
The resources in this toolkit are designed to help your library identify and take advantage of opportunities-through Maine Memory and otherwise-to engage patrons and community partners in the exploration, preservation, and sharing of your community's history.
