With the recent purchase of the Abel Jones house, the South China Library has taken the next step in the journey to find a new location for the library. The Abel Jones house, located on Jones Road, in South China, is the birthplace and boyhood home of Rufus M. Jones. The historic home, built in 1815, and its adjacent property, offers many possibilities for the expansion of the library and its programs for community members of all ages.
While there will not be immediate changes at the library, the library directors and volunteers are excited about planning for the future and including ideas and input from the community.
The public is invited to the South China Library annual meeting on Monday, August 1, at 6 p.m. at the library, 247 Village Street in South China. Please join us to hear highlights of current programs and continue the conversation about the future of the library. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
South China Library is the oldest continuously operating library in Maine. Established in 1830, the library is a nonprofit organization run by dedicated volunteers. Please call 445-4188 or visit southchinalibrary.org for more information.
