Vassalboro Library

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.


Children and students of all ages are invited to join the Vassalboro Public Library’s 2021 Summer Reading Program! The theme this year is “Tails and Tales” which will explore stories and facts about animals and the habitats they call home. Registration starts Monday, June 14th.

Each participant, upon signing up, will receive a book bag with summer reading prizes including a free book, Vassalboro Library t-shirt, and a Portland Sea Dog voucher! While supplies last!

Bring in your summer reading log each week throughout the summer to earn more prizes and pick up a new animal themed take and make craft. Some of the activities will include building your own bird feeder, rainforest terrariums, lizard keychains, weaving, stuffed animals and much more.

We also have STEM kits which can be checked-out for at-home learning and include engineering, circuitry, and basic programming.

And please continue to check our website and Facebook page because we also plan to offer live programs in the summer!

 


Vassalboro Library does now hold an ongoing year round book-sale during the libraries regular operating hours. Monday and Friday 12-6 and Wednesday and Saturday 10-4p.
