Welcome to the Winter Harbor Public Library. Stop by and sample our friendly atmosphere, historic building, and cozy reading room. Access our hi-speed Internet or browse the latest bestseller, a copy of the weekly newspaper, or our array of magazines. If we don’t have the book you are looking for please ask, and we can order it for you through the state library system or you can download it on your e-reader through the state library cloud.
Thanks to a grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, we have installed an ADA-compliant ramp for easier access into our building. Thanks to additional donations, we have purchased a bike rack and two benches, where you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere under the shade of trees and check your emails. Or, come in to the cool, wood-paneled interior and filtered light of the stained glass windows (which are being restored) of this former chapel and find the latest bestseller or a classic Maine author from bygone years.
We have an extensive collection of books by and about Maine, both fiction and non-fiction. Read a newspaper or magazine in one of our inviting armchairs or check your emails. Brew a cup of coffee or tea with our Keurig machine. Going on a long trip? Take along an audiobook. Visiting for the summer and don’t have TV service? Check out a DVD–or a jigsaw puzzle for those foggy days.
We have a well-rounded catalog of fiction and non-fiction book selections, DVDs, and audiobooks. We are always open to suggestions for purchases. Check our shelves frequently for NEW items. Books are loaned for 21 days. DVDs and audiobooks may be borrowed for 7 days. Jigsaw puzzles for 4 weeks. Patrons may check out up to 10 books, 5 DVDs, and 3 audiobooks at a time. Magazines may be checked out for 7 days. All books may be renewed by phone or email.
We also have a selection of used books for sale at the entrance of the library.
