Maine Memory Workshops

MMNBlurbTime for another round of 21st century Skills Workshops around the state!

We’ve been running these workshops–which include an in-depth and interactive demo of Maine Memory, a case study of a local history project, and activities to assess your organization’s goals and how Maine Memory might help fulfill them–for the past two years under a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The workshops are free, three hours long, and held in libraries. They are open to library and historical society/museum staff, members, and volunteers, as well as interested community members.

This spring, workshops are being held at:

  • Cherryfield Free Public Library, on April 29, from 9:30AM-12:30PM
  • Skidompha Public Library, Damariscotta, on May 2, from 1-4PM
  • Bangor Public Library, on May 21, from 1-4PM

To register, visit the Training page on Maine Memory, download the simple registration form, and send it in. Deadline is three business days prior to the workshop date.

An abbreviated version of the workshop–basically, just the demo–is offered every other month at MHS in Portland. The next session is on Wednesday, May 15, at noon. To register for that, send an email to For more details on the workshop, and additional dates throughout the year, visit the Ongoing Programs section of the MHS website.
