About Me

Howdy! I’m Renée Burkett, Special Collections Librarian at McArthur Public Library in Biddeford, Maine since January 2007. (You can check out my credentials on my LinkedIn profile.)

When I’m not taking my turn as part of the fab Adult Reference Team here at McArthur, helping folks find books, information & use technology of all kinds, I’m your friendly neighborhood archivist ~ happily in the dark & dusty recesses of the library, working to help preserve and provide access to Biddeford’s amazing historical record. I also serve on various professional committees and boards in Maine and around New England, and write and present on various topics of archival and local history practice.

When I’m not at work, you can usually find me hanging out with my kids, running, reading or gazing at the stars.

Thanks for visiting!
