Support the Library with a Donation!

Since 1893 the Porter Memorial Library Association has striven to provide the people of Machias and its surrounding communities with the best services a small town library can provide. While the town of Machias provides an annual grant to cover a portion of the Library’s operating costs, the remainder is raised through our fundraisers, and through the generosity of our Library Friends.

Contributions to the Annual Appeal are accepted at any time during the year to help fund our collections, programs, and services, as well as the general operation of the Library. Every gift, regardless of size, is welcomed and needed!
