    How can I donate artwork for your Clothesline Art Gallery for Library Day.
    Do you accept photographs?

    • Hi Heidi! Yes, we accept anything that can be hung on a clothesline. If you coming to the island, just stop by the Library. You can also put work artwork in the door or in the book drop if we are not open. If you won’t be around, you can mail it to us: Monhegan Memorial Library, 1 Library Lane, Monhegan ME 04852. Thank you so much, we really appreciate it!
