Thompson Free Library part of Heart of Maine Community Stories

The Heart of Maine Community Stories is an online platform for collecting and sharing stories about life in the Heart of Maine region. This community-based project is a collaboration between Hartland Public Library, Newport Cultural Center, Pittsfield Public Library and Thompson Free Library in Dover-Foxcroft.


The current focus of Heart of Maine Community Stories is on documenting life during the COVID-19 pandemic and how the virus has impacted our communities. We encourage you to contribute your story — by photo, video, interview, letter, poem — to help us document life in Central Maine during this pandemic.


We hope this archive will not only preserve our region’s history for future students and community members, but also bring together generations through the act of sharing and listening. Please visit to share your story.
