The New Gloucester Historical Society invites the community to a special event to honor the late Edwin E. Libby, on Saturday, October 5 at 10 a.m. at the History Barn, 383 Intervale Rd. 

Libby was a lifelong resident of the town, a supporter of the Historical Society, and an avid collector of local historic postcards. Using donations made in Libby’s honor, the Historical Society commissioned local master woodworker Chris Becksvoort to craft a cherry display case for a new computer that will show digitized postcards from the society‚Äôs extensive collection.  The computer and display case will be dedicated in memory of Edwin Libby on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the History Barn. 

The dedication is sponsored by the New Gloucester Historical Society, and all are invited to attend.  The History Barn will open at 9 a.m. and is located in the Town Hall complex. For more information, please contact Leonard L. Brooks: (207) 926-3188.
