Postcrossing is a non-profit organization whose goal is to get people to send and receive actual, written postcards to and from other members around the world. The library has had an account for about four months–a display of the postcards we received can be viewed in the lobby. We plan to set up a monthly Postcrossing Club for members to share postcards they’ve received, and to swap blank postcards to send. You can set up your free account by going to Postcrossing, where you will also find out more information about how it works. If you have questions about Postcrossing or our plans for the club, please email Rachel Davis.
The library is now open from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, so make us part of your weekend routine! All other library hours remain the same.

We have library passes for the Tate House Museum, a national historic landmark built in 1755 in Portland, Maine. Visit Portland’s only colonial home open to the public, imagine domestic life in an 18th century home and garden, and discover the mast trade and its part in the American Revolution!
These are available from June through October, and one pass is good for up to four individuals (not for groups or organizations).
For more information about the Tate House Museum, visit their web site or call (207) 774-6177.
