Community Library

Some fifteen years ago, New Portland’s first public library opened in an old school house in the North Village. Over time the building proved no longer suitable, and thanks to many grants a new library was built in the East Village, close by the Town Office and Fire Station. The new library opened in 2006 and has more space than the previous building, a special children’s corner, a board room, a tutoring office and computers with high speed internet available to the public. There is a wireless connection for use with people who have their own laptops. We have a large selection of books, including large print, hardcover and paperbacks, magazines, audio books, and movies available. The board room as well as seating space in the library and the tutoring office are all available to patrons for individual use as well as small meetings. Various meetings and public events are held throughout the year. Toasty Tuesday mornings invite the public in to do crafts, play cards, view our collections, get assistance with genealogy questions, and enjoy a hot beverage and snacks.

A list of special events organized by the library for 2016 include:

Cpr class

Children’s Story Hour (2nd Saturday of the month, 9-10am)

Booksignings by local artists

Photo Challenge Slideshow

Ladies’ Tea
