The Impact - Osher


The impact of the Friends of the Osher Map Library is far-reaching. On a yearly basis we:

  • Support the OML in staffing positions for research, digitizing the collection and significantly expanding educational outreach for Maine’s K-12 students.
  • Grow the Friends’ Endowment.
  • Support lectures by prominent guest speakers at the OML.
  • Aid in conducting VIP tours in the library and gallery.
  • Support publications as suggested by the OML staff.
  • Aid in the expansion of the OML’s collection and fund specific needs of the OML.
  • Produce periodic newsletters.
  • Have a board of directors who serve on committees supporting library activities and promotion.

Become a Friend and donate with a tax-deductible gift and you will preserve our Nation’s cartographic history for generations to come.
