Every summer I check out this library for all of the many books on the libraries porch. At 25 cents per book you can't beat it. They have all subject areas which will make any reader happy. Not to be passed by!

We walked around to the monument and it was larger than I expected. This monument pays homage to those who lost their lives at sea. It was quite humbling as there were over 5000 people that never came back. From memory the last fisherman lost at sea was in 2011, lets hope it stays that way

Stopped at the library to research and print directions to a specific destination. Service was friendly and helpful. Nice selection of books. Copy price was only .20 a sheet!

We happened upon a community band concert on the library lawn one Thursday night in August. It was a wonderful experience with a large happy audience, and we were delighted to share it.

You can't miss the library in Boothbay Harbor. It's right in the middle of the most popular area for wandering, shopping and eating. It's lawn is the site of weekly band concerts in the summer.

For a small town, the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library is top notch. It is a great place to linger among the shelves of books….they are divided to make it easy to find what you are looking for or not looking for. The computer room with printers is available on a sign-up basis. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. We... More

If you're a reader, this little library has an honor system of paper back and hard back books on the front porch. From mysteries to best sellers to classics, there is something for everyone and you leave a donation in return. Lovely idea!

Quiet reading rooms, good WiFi, modern amenities. When you exhausted your shopping, here's a nice spot to just relax with a good newspaper, book, or some computer time.
