Our Vision:library renderinglibrary rendering 2

 

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.” 
― Sidney Sheldon

The New Lisbon Memorial Library is full of wonderful pieces of history.  We have albums full of historic photos and stories that date back as late as 1854.  These albums were a labor of love for local historian Fred Rabuck and his assistant John Stastny.

Now, thanks to our own archivist, Trenton Streck-Havill, these images, as well as Wa-Du-Shuda yearbooks, are available to you right from the comfort of your computer.  It is as easy as a click of a button!

Check out the Tab “New Lisbon Archives” to begin your trek through history!

Orphan Train

by:  Christina Baker Kline

download (4)Between 1854 and 1929, so called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck or chance.  Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?

As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was one such child, sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away.  Returning East later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine, the memories of her upbringing rendered a hazy blur.  But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past.

Seventeen year old Molly Ayer knows that a community service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall.  But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they appear.  A Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes, Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past.
