History and Purpose

The New Vineyard Public Library Association was formed in 1961 and offered books to subscribers from shelves in the basement of Smith Hall. The current location on Lake Street  was the result of a generous donation of land and money by Judith Johnson. The first building on the site was completed in 1991 with community labor and support. During 2012-2013 the Association added to the buidling, and a new library, Historical Society space, and community room were dedicated on August 2, 2014. The town office moved into the initial library's space.

As technology changed how individuals get access to information and interact with each other, the library's mission has expanded:

The New Vineyard Library offers opportunities for our community to learn and get to know each together. Our varied collection, scheduled events, and available technology provide education, entertainment, and links to the wider world.

The Library provides the community with programs for children and adults. Besides fiction, biographies and non-fiction, we have an extensive collection of  books about New Vineyard and Maine. Patrons check out movies and books on CD. The facility provides computers for use by patrons. Come and browse or stop to use our lightning-fast wifi, available from the parking lot 24/7.

The  current library could not exist without the generous support of the town and the volunteer and financial support of individual donors. Thank you! 


 Our Librarian is Mina Miller, newvineyardlibrary@gmail.com, 652-2250.
