Worth a step inside!

Great historic building. Charming librarian. Depending on your level of book/history loving this can be a 10 minute stop or an hour. It's certainly worth a step inside.

What a unique, wonderful place! Great place for a rainy day read, or to check on local lore. Check out the antique grandfather clock when you visit! It's small and cozy, old and rustic, and peaceful. Just stop in for a few moments to see what a library must have been like 100 years ago.

Quaint castle style library with not a lot to see. I snapped some pictures of the outside and we wandered in. The librarian barely acknowledged us, but also did not mind our wandering and admiring the paintings and the fireplace and such. We were probably inside 10 minutes...allowing time in the small childrens corner too. Worth the stop, but maybe... More

A walk back in history (Mom, what's a library?) that anyone over 40 would appreciate - they still have a real "card file" here. Fascinating architecture. USGS survey map of the area inside, children's section as well, and QUIET!

What a great library. Nice to learn the history of the library . I was on my towns library board for over twenty years so I enjoy checking out different library's and how they function. Don't miss this beautiful building that was donated to town.

As lovely inside as outside. Looking for a respite from commerce and crowds? Chat with the librarians for a unique insight into the community.

The Ogunquit Library, with its stone facade and turret almost looks fortress-like, and is quite an interesting place to visit. Through the heavy oak doors, with the large metal hinges is a central room, and seated directly across is the quintessential Librarian, a pleasant older lady with glasses reading to pass the time. The room smells of old books and... More

Visually beautiful village library. If you are going there for selection you will be disappointed. But it scores high in charm and character and if you have only been in very modern libraries do yourself a favor and stop by and sit in the quiet space and read a magazine article or a chapter of an old volume.
