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

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..
