Major expansion programs are currently underway at libraries in the towns of Old Town, Guilford and Brunswick. And according to Benita Davis of the Maine State Library, the Maine State Library Network has replaced or updated computers in more than 180 of Maine's 270 public libraries, and 240 public libraries are now connected to the Internet.
