Archival Notes, November 2018

On a recent trip downstate, I stopped to visit a lady that I meant on my summer bus trip to Cape Cod. She works at the Brewer Public Library. When visiting there she showed me their Historical Room. They primarily collect Brewer materials but did have some other Maine and New England publications. Very nicely set up and they have their resident person who is the expert. Love visiting libraries where I haven’t been before.
