The Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation fully funds the Museum and Library of the Grand Lodge of Maine, located in Holden, Maine. Included in its inventory are books and software designed specifically for modern library and museum collections. Books, e-books, pamphlets, magazines, CD/DVDs, and more are added to the collection daily. We are purchasing new and relevant works in many fields to further enhance the usefulness of the Library for Maine Masons, their friends, and communities. To learn more about the Library, click here.
We are also moving forward on several other fronts. The library has a Kindle Fire containing several Masonic-related books and more. We’ll be using this to help members and the public get acquainted with this new technology and to obtain books which are now available only in electronic form.
We also established a computer with Wi-Fi access for use by anyone, including the public, at our offices in Holden. We’re adding books and aids for genealogical research (check out our ‘Quick Sheet’: Freemasonry for Genealogists) and have added a small collection of children’s and general interest books for borrowing. We’re also exploring relationships with various groups to enhance our offerings in new and different ways.
The Grand Lodge Library & Museum is a member of the Masonic Library & Museum Association, the Maine Library Association, and the Maine Archives & Museum Association as well as the Maine Genealogical Society and the National Genealogical Society.
The Museum and Library of the Grand Lodge of Maine continues to expand and accommodate the needs and requests of those who make use of our resources. Your support is key to continuing the growth.
