Bruce McMillan Corner


The Springvale Library is delighted to host the Bruce McMillan Corner in the Children's Room of the library.  Katahdin Award winning author and illustrator Bruce McMillan has been a library supporter for more than thirty years he has lived in Shapleigh, Maine.  Springvale Library became his library, and he became our author from the time when he was a struggling writer until today, when he is an internationally known author of more than forty-five highly honored children's books.  Bruce has generously donated nine of his original hand tinted photographs from Grandfather's Trolley to hang on permanent display in the Children's Room.  Come in and visit, borrow one of Bruce's fine books and enjoy the trolley pictures. more info...
