The Porter Memorial Library and the Board of Trustees have signed a contract with Carter Architectural Design, LLC to develop a plan to immediately address the handicap accessibility of the building. The Bangor based architectural firm will work with the board, in a phased approach to address immediate access needs as well as other improvements to allow better utilization of the library. Gerard NeCastro, board trustee, comments “This project is an essential piece of our vision, which is to serve everyone in Machias.” Potential plans will be submitted and reviewed in a few weeks, along with cost estimates for phase one of the construction process.

The Porter Memorial Library needs your help!

Porter Memorial Library and its board of trustees are scheduling a series of focus group sessions to be held in and around Machias. Facilitated by Jane Haskell of the University of Maine, the library invites the public to discuss issues and opportunities facing our library. All opinions are welcome from community members, some who may be regular library patrons, and others who may never have visited the library.
