The Scarborough Bicentennial Series will culminate with the exhibit of the Scarborough Bicentennial Quilt. Last fall, over 45 quilters from our community created individual squares representing themes related to our town and its history. The assembled quilt will be displayed at the Library from April 17 thru April 19 on a bed owned by William King, Scarborough native and Maine’s first Governor. The bed is part of the Scarborough Historical Society’s collection. The exhibit will be open during regular library hours and will acknowledge the talented quilters who shared their time and creativity to make this commemorative quilt possible!
This series was made possible through the financial partnership of the Scarborough Public Library and Scarborough Historical Society, and through a grant awarded by the Maine Humanities Council. Programs will be held at the Library and are free to attend.
