Read ME

Read ME is a statewide summer reading program offered by the Maine Humanities Council and Maine State Library that gets Maine’s adults all reading the same books. Each year a well-known Maine author recommends two titles (one fiction, one non-fiction) by lesser-known Maine authors.

2021’s featured books - recommended by Gerry Boyle - are Mainely Power by Matt Cost (fiction) and Mill Town by Kerri Arsenault (non-fiction). 


Copies of both books can be requested through the library's catalog. Check the Maine Humanities Council website for information about upcoming Read ME programs.
