I have taken my children here since they were 2. Just looking at the beautiful architecture of each room will keep you entertained for hours. Always helpful and super cozy during the winter months when you need to get out of the house.

Beautiful area of Fairhaven and very historical building. We needed some books for our daughter 's masters classes, staff was very helpful finding and getting it sent to this library for pickup. A few days later was notified it was there ready for us.

Built in the late 1800's to memorialize the daughter of a wealthy couple, this has to be one of the most eye-appealing, castle-like library's in the US.

This beautiful library has a good selection of fiction and non-fiction. The children's section is well stocked with a wide range of reading levels. Staff is helpful. I use the library in person, on line for ebook orders and to place holds on books I wish to read.

The Millicent Library is great place for locals to pickup books, movies and CDs. It's also a wonderful place for tourists for its architecture, history and ghost stories! Built by Henry Huttleston Rogers and named for his daughter Millicent.
