Long Lake Public Library
384 Main Street, St. Agatha, ME 04772
Dear Friends of the library,
During the pandemic and this time following, we at Long Lake Public Library, have done all in our power to recognize the needs and return to serve our patrons with uninterrupted service and availability of activities hopefully by the summer 2022. We especially look forward to the Children’s Story and Activity Hour.
We acknowledge and gratefully recognize the following organizations that have been accessible to us not only for funding but have assisted us with their consultants every step of the way. Actually, these groups have been serving us from the very beginning of the library. The Maine State Library is a constant in supplying staff, internet service, van service and more. They also kept us informed, made sure that the services we provide are available and in 2021 this included ARPA funds. Maine Humanities Council, not only sustained us with supportive funds but with programs that bring the community together, such as, “Let’s talk about it”, and this year, a Discussion Project on Climate Change held from April to June, including people from school and community. Maine Community Foundation with grants are focused on building rural communities, such as, Rudman Family Rural Library Fund, supplying and maintaining our library collection. EHDOC Elderly Housing Development & Operations Corporation, for their generous monthly rent reduction. Eight persons have received free computers through the National Digital Equity Center. We are truly indebted to all who serve us which allows us to serve you.
Mr. Sylvio Albert, a former St. Agatha resident, has made a substantial donation for our genealogy work. With these funds our hope is to work more closely in collaboration with the local towns, school, historical society to collect and digitalize information about our area, making it available to our families near and far.
The Library Board offers sincere appreciation to all of you who have generously contributed to our yearly fund raisers as that paid the yearly bills of the library. You have trusted, supported and encouraged us. We are most grateful to all who have and continue to volunteer their time and energy. We thank you in advance for considering making a donation of your choice and we appreciate the generosity of all who have already made a donation.
We invite you to come visit, use the services and let us know what else you would like to see happening at the library. We welcome your suggestions.
