Tuesday, September 20, 6 PM: The Zany Majestic Bard – Celebrating the Inventive Language of Shakespeare.  Click the poster for a larger version! Presented through a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.  This program is free and open to the public.

MML is pleased to announce a new library program: the Merrill Film Society.  This will be an informal gathering of community members to view great works of cinema with one another.  Everyone is invited.

The viewings will be at Lewis Hall on the library’s 3rd floor, showtime is 7pm.  August 10 we are showing Close-up (1990, in Farsi with English subtitles), and August 24 we are showing North by Northwest (1957).

Please join us for what are bound to be invigorating and enjoyable evenings.  We hope to see you there.  The films are free and popcorn will be served!


Beanstack is an online Reader’s Advisory service that we offer. Parents may sign up for free, with or without a library card, and create a profile for each of their children including age, reading level, and interests. Each week, we will send you an email with a tailored book recommendation highlighting a book in our collection, as well as activities to do while reading the book that will enhance the experience of reading together as a family.  Try it out and let us know what you think!!
