Library Renovation Information

MHS is nearing completion of the renovation and expansion of its Research Library! Designed by Alexander Longfellow, a prominent Maine architect and nephew of the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the Library was built in 1907 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The renovation preserves the historic character of the building yet transforms the Library into a state-of-the-art research facility, providing first-rate care of the collections we hold in trust for all the people of Maine.
