It was a small but wonderful library and the outside was made of great stones and looked very warm and inviting , so we chose to go in and were glad we did.

great collection of local books and photos and paintings, comfortable chairs, current newspapers, and, of course, lots of fiction and non-fiction. Nice place to stop in and read.

We dodged into the library to escape an October downpour -- and because my wife, a librarian, enjoys visiting other libraries. Despite the fact that it was 20 minutes before closing time on a Saturday (Extra credit: This library is open until 5 p.m. Saturday), the librarian greeted us warmly and told us a bit about the building, the town...

This is a charming little library in a charming little town. Worth a quick visit. It has a lot of old books and it is a quick walk from the town.

In a beautiful stone (church-like) bldg, built in late 1880's, two main rooms. I believe they do not use computer technology (but do have wifi available), so it was like stepping back into a library in the 1940's, complete with card catalogs. Definitely worth a visit!

This place is filled with good old and new books. Worth a read ! After we salute the librarian, she said right away "there's no restrooms here". Very inviting : we were coming for the books and didin't ask a thing. She seemed tired to see quiet tourists.

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
