Mark Your Calendar for Booked for the Night – Saturday March 3, 2018

The next Booked for the Night will be held here at Curtis on Saturday, March 3, 2018 – Mark your calendar!

To all those who attended the 2017 event, purchased tickets, or purchased tickets so others could attend — thank you for making BOOKED FOR THE NIGHT 2017 such a fun and successful event. Nearly 170 library supporters came out on a bitter Maine night and quickly warmed up the library — sharing their love of books and community. We will report back soon with total funds raised in support of future exhibits and programs in the Collaboratory.

Here are some photos from the night. If you have others you’d like to share, please send them along to Digital Librarian Michael Gorzka at

We’d like to once again give a special thanks to the incredible artists who designed the Little Free Libraries:

Maria Castellano-Usery, Melissa Hall, Cassie Jones & Mark Wethli, Scott Nash and Nancy Gibson-Nash, and Olga Pastuchiv.

And our sponsors: Goodwin Motor Group – LEAD SPONSOR
IN-KIND SUPPORT from New Beet Market, Flight Deck Brewing, Hancock Lumber, Region 10 Technical High School, BEK, Inc.

Thanks, too, to the wonderful String Tide band for keeping it lively all night, and Gregg Carville for lighting the Little Free Libraries.
