Open 6 days a week during day except for the one hour it is closed for lunch, imagine that, a place that actually closes for lunch. Nice place to view some of history of Ogunquit and relax in one of the reading rooms.

This small space lets you step back in time. Stepping inside, you imagine what a gem this building has been to area vacationers and residents. It's a perfect place to read or find a book. There is also a great shaded sitting area outside with benches. If you like historic buildings and memorial libraries, don't miss this one.

If you are looking to get away from the crowds, find a quiet stone place to chill with a book, paper, journal or kindle, this is it. Check the hours as they are not bankers hours.

A true delightful place to visit. Wonderful books written about Ogunquit by local authors. Reminded me of the library in town where I grew up. Would recommend a visit to this spot any day.

This is an architecturally stunning library and a terrific place to take out a book to catch up on some reading. While there are no computers, a real bummer, there is solid wifi.

If you miss the old fashioned card catalogues - look no further! They still have one! Mary, the librarian, is a peach and sure to help you find what you need. This is THE rainy day destination in Ogunquit - and it looks like a castle, so your kids will love it!

Great place to wile away a rainy day. Good choice of kids books. My favorite part was showing my kids what a real card catalog looked like. Beautiful art all around the inside. Free wifi. No bathrooms.

The architecture of this library is wonderful. And the gardens are attractive. But it is a library - I have visited four or more times and have pulled books off the shelves that have not been taken out in 20 plus years. This gem needs to current!. Newer books. DVD's. And update magazines.

Thank LoveGoodFood207
