Lincolnville Historical Society
The library grew out of a project of the Lincolnville Historical Society and the two organizations continue to collaborate on programs. An area in the library is set aside for historical society exhibits and books. The society also maintains displays of historical objects in the nearby Jackie Watts Open Air Museum, which is open in the summer months.
