Friends of Princeton will be sponsoring a Princeton Flea Market Day on Sat. the 12th from 9-2:00 p.m.

The rain date is July 19th. Follow the signs on West St. If interested, call 796-2723 or pick up a registration form at the town office.

Last year was the first year for the community event which was very well attended. Friends will be selling good condition used books with the proceeds going to the library. The reproduction underground railroad quilt tickets will also be available. The Princeton Grange will be providing the food on site. An early thank you goes out to all of the PHS Alumni and friends who  have already responded with a generous donation to the library remodeling fund. The thermometer sign in fromt of the library will be receiving some red paint very soon.

 On Monday, June 30, Nancy Marshall and yours truly attended a meeting of the Pembroke Historical Society where we received a warm welcome.. We were invited by Candace Kanes, Curator/Historian of the Maine Memory Network. She asked us to speak of our grant and project to put an exhibit about Princeton on the Maine Memory Network. Candace had several handouts. One very informative sheet how to navigate the Network to look for historical information. It starts by telling how to search the site. In the search box look for names, locations, and topics or go to Advanced Search by Contributor, Town, or specify the type of item, date, or location. For more information on using the Maine Memory Network, come into the library and you can get a copy of the handout.
