The Maine State Library subscription was temporarily made accessible from anywhere in the state (so from your own home) during COVID closures. That expanded access will expire after December 31.

You can still access from any public library or school in the state, as the subscription uses the IP address of these locations to provide you with free access. Please visit our newly relocated Genealogy & Local History room in the 1904 Building (the room beyond the Magazines & Newspapers Room) to access Ancestry, or any of the other seating areas around the building. We have public access computers on the 2nd floor if you don’t bring your own device with you.

The new link to access from the library is here:
