The Maine History Room is open to our patrons who want to research family genealogies or general Maine and local history. Much of our reference materials in the Maine History Room are not available in the regular library circulation catalog and can only be accessed in this room. Our helpful volunteers will expertly guide you through our resources and aid you with your research needs. The Maine History Room is located on the second floor of the Dyer Library. The room is also available by appointment.

Saco Museum Shop - Consignment Treasures
Looking for that unique gift for a special someone? Do you have a treasure that you no longer need but someone else might love to have?

The SACO MUSEUM SHOP is offering a new opportunity to purchase high-end art objects, painting, fiber work, jewelry, and exceptional decorative pieces. We are calling it CONSIGNMENT TREASURES and it is a juried selection of high-quality pieces at very favorable prices.

The way it works: the consignor (seller) presents the item(s) to the shop committee for evaluation. The price is determined by the seller. When an item is sold, the consignor receives 70% of the sale price; the museum receives 30% which in turn helps to support programs of the Saco Museum. Items are featured for several months and, if not sold, will be returned to the consignor.

For more information or an appointment to view your treasures, please contact Elsa Geskus at
