St. George is Getting a New Library!

Currently the Jackson Memorial Library is a little red house just down the street from the general store in the village of Tenants Harbor. Since 2007 the JML Building Committee has been pursuing a new space for the Library. Initially, the committee researched building a new library on Juniper Street and began raising funds for the project. This past May the plans took an unexpected turn when Lillius Gilchrest Grace Institute offered to donate a building that previously housed a Youth Center to the Library. JML accepted the building and the gift became official on July 3rd. The building is only five-years-old and is over 9,000 square feet situated on 8 acres of land. It is located right next to the St. George School at 71 Main Street.

The former Youth Center will be renovated to be St. George's Library.

There is still work to be done as the Youth Center is transformed into a Library and Maine Coast Construction is proud to be the contractor for the job!

The plans for the renovation by architect Christian Fasoldt of Camden are on the Library’s website: www.JacksonMemorialLibrary.org.  There will be a groundbreaking ceremony at the new site on 71 Main Street on Saturday, November 17th at 10am.
