Beautiful old library

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.

Mostly agree with the previous reviews. Impressive structure. Lovely gardens. Somewhat annoyed-looking librarian probably assuming we were yet another family looking for a restroom (none, per the sign on the door). Would have been nice to feel welcomed as a family encouraging children to read on vacation, which would in turn provide future employment for librarians... Collection and arrangement feels... More

We did not get a chance to go inside but the outside is just amazing! I wish we stopped in. We thought it was a castle at first when approaching. Would have loved to learn more about the history but certainly great for photos!
