before making your trip to the library.

The New LCN Digital Archive is Live!

If you are a Skidompha Library Card holder, you now have access to an online archive of historic issues of The Lincoln County News. This access is the culmination of a multi-year effort to preserve these historic newspapers. (For more information about the project, you can read this article from last fall featured in The Lincoln County News.)
Skidompha Library is committed to preserving our local history for the benefit of future generations. This project would not have been possible without generous grants from the Burns Family Foundation, the Maine Community Foundation, the historical societies of Damariscotta, South Bristol, Whitefield, Old Bristol, and Edgecomb, and numerous individual donors.
Interested in archive access? Visit our website to learn more; please scroll down to The Lincoln County News Archives information to fill out the form for access.

Skidompha Giving Tree at Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop

Dear readers,

We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop on a very special gifting opportunity. 

This year, please visit Sherman’s on Main Street in Damariscotta to pick up a Skidompha Library Gift-a-Book Tag. These tags include book titles that Skidompha Librarians would like to add to Skidompha’s lending collection. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase the title listed on the tag from Sherman’s at a 10% discount to be donated to the library. You may also pass along the cheer and gift a book in someone’s name. You’ll receive a Skidompha note card upon checkout, so you will have the opportunity to share this special gift with someone you care about. This display will be up through the new year, so please stop in and take a look.

Thank you for supporting local businesses that in turn support our local economy (and our local non-profits). Buying local is more than a movement– it’s helping your neighbor. So buy local this Saturday and support your library at the same time. 

Thank you in advance for considering Skidompha this holiday season. 

Matthew Graff

Executive Director
