My sister and I both work for libraries in our home towns, so we had to stop in this charming old town library. The librarian was very friendly and informative. I couldn't remember the name of a Maine mystery writer (only remembered his first name) and she went out of her way to figure out (GERRY BOYLE). Nice quiet spot,... More

Tiny, but packed full of great books. It is a nice place to take a quiet break from the sun and sand.

The building attracted us to the library. We were lucky enough that it was open at the time we were there. It is the original library, built, I believe, in the1800s. It is small--which only makes it amazingly cozy and beautiful doesn't begin to describe it. It's worth a short--or long visit--length of your visit depending on your interest in... More

I had to go in see the inside. Old style with lots of character and the old fashioned card catalogs. Unfortunately, librarian (?) at desk made no response at all when I said I had just come in to look. Totally ignored me. Not even a smile.

Still uses a card catalog! Usually holds book sales. I love visiting libraries and this one was special. Beautiful facade and lovely memorial garden..

We were attracted to peek inside this beautiful stone building. As short term visitors, we didn't check the books but did enjoy the interior design of the rooms.

Beautiful charming library - very small but historic. No computers. Very intimate. Make sure you get a postcard picture of the building. Interesting local historic photos on walls. Worth a visit!

Since 2010, when we first headed north for vacation (and my experience with Ogunquit prior to that goes back to 1960!), I've always made the time to be able to stop in at the OML, which is an oasis of reading and education second to none. If you want to see what it was once like to be able to... More

Didn't have time to visit the inside of the library, but it is a beutiful structure ... a definite stop on my next visit, especially if it is a rainy day.
