The North Monmouth library which has been serving the area on Main Street for 87 years is now a part of history.

In January the Maine Historic Preservation Commission was considering placing the bright yellow building on the National Register of Historic Places. Commission’s director Kirk Mohney says it is now done. The North Monmouth library have been documented, evaluated and considered worthy of the distinction. It’s worth preservation and protection as part of the nation’s cultural heritage.

After the library closed to the public in 2014, it came under the care of the Monmouth Museum and has also received a new roof and a paint job that recalls its original coloring.

This spring the museum will begin storing reference and history books and with the 225th anniversary of the incorporation of Monmouth and according pressherald.com the museum might hold some sort of ceremony.
