If you are a member, you have probably received our Spring Newsletter.I have worked at an e-mail list. About 25% of our members have shared their e-mail and will get the newsletter both ways. We will never stop mailings to those without an e-mail, but we do hope to move to e-mail for newsletters and other info, for those who share theirs with us, because mailing costs are so incredibly high, particularly when mailing to hundreds of people. Also, because it is easier for me to manage from home, I have created a new e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make a note of it. Happy Keeping!
The Brooklin Keeeping Society was formed in 2000 to collect, preserve, and exhibit materials pertaining to the Town of Brooklin Maine, and to research said history for the education of the Society and the community at large.
Located in the back of the Brooklin Town Office, with an adjacent research building, we exhibit artifacts and maintain files, photographs, geneology and artifacts of the town's history and present. Our buildings are open to the public 1-4 PM on Tuesday afternoon year round, with a staff of volunteers ready to assist visitors in their area of inquiry. From April through October, we have Society meetings the last Thursday of every month with historic programs of interest to the community at large.
During our Tuesday afternoon hours you may reach our volunteers at 207-359-8880.
