The Camden Public Library is hosting a series, “Camden’s Industries: Past, Present, and Future,” throughout the month of January, including an exhibit, historians, and a retrospective look at the Knox Woolen Company. The library will also host the presentation of the much-anticipated final report on Camden’s future prospects from Camden’s Community and Economic Development Advisory Committee.

The CEDAC presentation is on Thursday, Jan. 27, at 6:30 p.m. The final report is a result of months of work canvassing the town, working on a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats), and working with the interim development director to create the strategic action plan for economic development in Camden.

The library will also host a Knox Woolen Company Retrospective, including a slide presentation and history of the mill by Don Gross and others. The library is hoping for help with the retrospective from the community, so if you have memories or photographs you would like to add to the slide show, please send them to Heather Bilodeau at the library’s Walsh History Center. The Knox Woolen Company event will be on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2 to 4 p.m, and all are welcome.

Photographs of the Knox Woolen Mill by Bonnie Farmer will be on exhibit, along with other memorabilia from the mill, in the Jean Picker Room for the month.
