The Vassalboro Library was founded in 1909 and has been associated with the town since 1911. The library is managed by the trustees of the Vassalboro Public Library Association and the town of Vassalboro currently provides about 80 per cent of the funding of the library. The original library burned down in 1979 and moved to its current location in 1980. In 2000 an addition was added to the library with all the funds coming from donations to the Vassalboro Public Library Association. The current librarian is Brian Stanley.
