Hello all!
I am in the process of weeding our Maine Biographies section and thought I
would offer the ones I no longer want for our collection to the list!
Mostly because with anything related to old Maine books, you gotta wonder,
did we keep it for a reason or just because it is about Maine? Someone
might want it, RIGHT? Should we keep it just in case? Am I getting rid of
something because it is old (and musty) and I don't know its actual local
historical significance? PERHAPS. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. We all hate to get rid of
Maine related books, but sometimes the collection needs cleaning up.
Dipping my toe in with biographies, just waiting to see the future mess I
make of our Maine Collection.

Our loss(?) is your gain. We don't want these, our historical society
doesn't want these
but maybe you do!
Van delivery or pickup preferable since we don't have a post office in Cape
and I would need convincing to go to South Portland to mail anything from
this pile. :)
