The library is used for many community... More

We love our library, especially with the addition which seems to have doubled its size. The staff is most helpful and we also use the Overdrive app so we can checkout books online. This place does so much for the community with lectures, special events for kids, and the annual Cottage Tour. They have plenty of computer available for use... More

Now, you know as The Daring Librarian© I'm gonna love this little local library! But what it lacks for in size it more than makes up for in style, service, and offerings to the reading community. If you're a semi-local (you have a shore house that you go to every other weekend either on season or off) you CAN get... More

Good selection, fine kids programs, great lecture series. Librarians are knowledgeable, many extra helpers are locals who volunteer during the season. Library has an excellent book sale each year.
