The stars of the former “American Loggers” reality television show are giving Millinocket’s public library a hand during its six- to eight-month renovation starting next month.
The Pelletier family is allowing the Millinocket Memorial Library to move into its former Pelletier Loggers Family Restaurant Bar and Grill at 57 Penobscot Ave. while the library undergoes its planned $1.7 million renovation. The move is due to start at the end of May, with the library reopening in its temporary location on June 10, officials said.
The Pelletiers starred in the Discovery Channel show, which ran from 2009-11 and chronicled the large Franco-American family’s challenges running a logging business in the unforgiving northern Maine woods. The restaurant closed in August 2015, with owner Eldon Pelletier citing a lack of traffic downtown as the primary reason.
