The state library has a subscription for in-library use if you miss this, but here’s your chance to explore from home. Lots of New England records, with some others from eastern Canada and England thrown in for extra fun.

​At our own library, we will be creating a place in the Barbara Porter room where we will provide helpful information on conducting searches.  Our existing materials will be stored in one area.  If you have done extensive research on your own and would like to provide the library with your research, we would love to add it to our collection.  Also, when you are in the library, you have free access to  ​

Book Store Exploding with New Titles


Great place to do some Christmas Shopping!

Community members have been very generous with their donations to our Book Store.  We have many new titles which would make wonderful gifts for someone at Christmas.  With our hours changing, we will no longer be open on Monday evenings.  Plan on stopping by between 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday evenings to find a bargain at our store.  If this is a bad time, you are welcome to check out our store any time the library is open.  Just check in with our librarian, Lois Walton, and she will direct you to the store.  Our books are no longer marked with a price.  All we ask is that you leave a donation for our new Toddler Area.

It's Toddler Story Time!


Ready for a new year

Story Time for Toddlers takes place on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m.  Check our calendar for the next scheduled meeting.  Please welcome our new teacher, Courtney Howe.  Remember to use the back entrance.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Knitting Studio @ the Library

Join us on Tuesday evenings 6:00 - 8:00 to enjoy learning a life-long skill

Would you like to learn to knit? We will teach you. Do you want help with knitting projects? We will do that. Would you like to learn new knitting techniques such as turning the heel of a sock, making mittens with thumbs, the ten-stitch blanket, lace, fair isle color knitting? This is the place to come. All ages are welcome! It will also be a place where people who would just like to sit and knit with like-minded people are welcome. We are open to whatever the participants would like. 

We are really enjoying this time and would love to have you join in the fun.
