The north-west end of the Prince Memorial Library building's Cumberland Ring (painted blue with white trim) and the partially constructed Young Adult Room. The Prince Memorial Library Young Adult Challenge was launched on January 18, 1995, when an anonymous resident of Cumberland, later identified as Bruce Poliquin, pledged $35,000, provided equal amounts could be raised from the Town of Cumberland and the residents of Cumberland and North Yarmouth. The Town of Cumberland matched the $35,000, and private contributions amounted to an additional $45,745. The 728-square-foot Young Adult Room was dedicated on April 3, 1996, in memory of Jane Carpenter Poliquin. All funds remaining from the Young Adult Challenge were used to purchase furnishings and materials for the new space.Show Details
