Skowhegan, Maine Library

Skowhegan, Maine  LibrarySKOWHEGAN — Folks at the Skowhegan Free Public Library have discovered treasure in the attic. Scattered across the attic floor and buried in nearly a century’s worth of dust, were more than 150 vintage copies of noted Skowhegan native Louise H. Coburn’s 1916 book of poetry, “Kennebec and Other Poems.” Elsewhere, in the library’s mezzanine section, workers preparing for the library’s $1.5 million renovation project also found 20 unopened sets of Coburn’s early history, “Skowhegan on the Kennebec,” published in 1941, some still in the publisher’s shipping boxes. Copies of the books have been on display at the library all along, and the newly discovered editions will be sold during the library’s annual Christmas bazaar Friday and Saturday, a part of Skowhegan’s annual Holiday Stroll. Proceeds will be go toward library renovations. (read more at Morning Sentinel)
