Free Library – Brunswick, Maine

BUILDING TRADES students at Region 10 Technical High School in Brunswick built a Little Free Library — with replica features of Curtis Memorial Library, including copper roof, cupola and signature windows — and unveiled it Thursday at the Brunswick Visitor Center. The library offers a free book exchange for Downeaster passengers and all community members. Patrons can take a book and return a book there. Curtis Memorial Library will keep the Little Free Library supplied with free books. At right, Kathy Smith, vice chairwoman of the Curtis Memorial Library Board, left, and Cathy Barter, chairwoman, unveil the library at Brunswick Station. Hancock Lumber and Hammond Lumber have donated materials so Region 10 students can cut out Little Free Library kits for individuals, families, neighborhoods, groups and businesses to assemble from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 18 at Curtis Memorial. Students will help builders in what will be the largest community build of Little Free Libraries in Maine. For information on the movement, visit www.littlefreelibrary.org.
