Katahdin Trust Company was pleased to present a $3,000 donation to Cary Library this week.

Cary Library

The donation will be used toward Cary Library’s external renovation project taking place this summer, including the replacement of windows and stone facing on the north wall. “Historic Cary Library has been a source of pride for Houlton area residents for over a century,” shares Brian Gardiner, Senior Vice President, Commercial Services Officer. “We are pleased to assist the library with needed renovations that will help ensure patrons can continue to access library services for many years to come.”

“We are grateful to receive this gift,” adds Linda Faucher, Librarian. “We are very proud to have our building recognized on the National Register of Historic Places but like every older building, renovations are necessary and we carefully prioritize our needs from year to year.”

Cary Library sees over 70,000 visitors each year and serves two dozen surrounding communities. It is an independent library managed by its own volunteer Board of Trustees and relies on donations from Houlton and surrounding communities, local organizations and individuals.
