The World in Your Library: What’s Happening in Maine and Beyond? program by the Maine Humanities Council is a speaker series focused on current events both local and international and is offered free-of-charge to public Maine libraries.

Six libraries are involved with The World in Your Library and each hosts three hour-long presentations on current affairs issues, which provide their communities with a rare opportunity to explore those topics with experts. The council provides a list of topics offered by highly qualified Maine-based speakers and provides a stipend to cover the speaker’s costs.
