Literary Map of Maine

Maine boasts a rich literary heritage. Authors from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to James L. Nelson call us home and Maine's literature is as diverse as the state itself. Rain and mosquitoes may drive you indoors but the magnificence of this area is still something Curtis Library can offer you. Maine's authors live here among their books. Stop in to visit with them.

The Literary Map of Maine is a partnership between the Maine Sunday Telegram and several library and humanities groups in Maine.

Some New-ish Job Search Sites

A few new and noteworthy job sites have come to our attention....

Green Jobs:
  • GreenCollarBlog.org is a list of job boards "that focus on social or environmental responsibility." The listings (some with annotations) cover general green jobs and jobs in specific industries such as solar energy and green building.
  • Green Careers Guide provides job seekers a go-to resource for green careers within the wind, solar, and geothermal industries. They're linked by the Department of Energy.

Unemployment:
  • Pine Tree Legal Assistance provides links to social services, fuel assistance and other sites that might be helpful for the unemployed and low income families.

  • JoblessJoe.com approaches being unemployed from the visceral street level. It provides a positive and supportive community for people out of work. Highly recommended.

  • Another highly useful site is HelpIWasLaidOff.com. It is packed with useful tips and strategies for your job search or interview.

  • CareerOneStop.org has Maine (or any other state) employment resources that touch on unemployment benefits, job search, training, health insurance and foreclosures.
