12.15.22 | Welcome to Skidompha, Chloe!

Dear Friends,

You may have noticed a new yet familiar face here at Skidompha. I am very excited to announce that Chloe Deblois has joined the library as our new development director! Welcome to Skidompha, Chloe. Chloe’s presence will strengthen our team and provide much-needed energy and direction to this critical role. Chloe knows this community so well and is excited to deepen her connections to library supporters. She has creative ideas to broaden our reach and increase accessibility to the many wonderful programs and resources we offer.

Skidompha played a central role in Chloe’s formative years. Throughout her childhood in Newcastle, she was a devoted attendee of the children’s library, and her family regularly volunteered for Skidompha’s planning and fundraising efforts to transition to its new building. After graduating college with a degree in philosophy, Chloe returned to Damariscotta, where she spent a fulfilling time working with books and the public at Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop. She has a passion for nonfiction, history being a particular favorite, and loves learning about how stories connect, comfort, and strengthen us. She is excited to join Skidompha’s team and its role in the community. Please stop in to say hello the next time you find yourself at Skidompha and offer her your support.

Just a reminder that our holiday closure is from December 24 – December 31, 2022. We’ll reopen on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. Please make sure to get all of your books, music, and movies ahead of time! As a reminder, the Skidompha Secondhand Book Shop will be open during the holiday week, including both Christmas Eve day and New Year’s day.

Be well,

Matthew Graff
Executive Director
Skidompha Public Library
