Anonymous $100,000 Gift Names the Rachel Carson Periodicals Room

Things are blooming in Bar Harbor  -- and in the Jesup 2020 campaign!

Just hours after the launch of our new campaign website, one of our patrons walked into the library and made an extraordinary pledge of $100,000 to support the campaign. Wishing to remain anonymous, the donor has requested we recognize this gift by naming our historic periodicals room in honor of renowned ecologist and nature writer Rachel Carson.

To our anonymous benefactor: a heartfelt thank you from all of us here at the Jesup. We’re honored and humbled by your commitment to help preserve, protect and expand your library.

And to all of the library’s patrons, friends and supporters: we can’t wait to welcome you to the future Rachel Carson Periodicals Room!
