Such a beautiful building in and out, the staff is ready and able to help find a book whether in house or inter library. There's even a screen house outside in the warm months to DIY and read or use the wifi! The Brooklin Library is a credit to this small picture perfect sea coast town.

This was my home town library for many years until I moved to FL. Wonderful all around! Internet access. Local artist exhibits. Located right downtown Brooklin where local color is plentiful!

Beautiful. Daylight is all around. Layout is exceptional. My wife is on our local library board so we went in for a look. We will be visiting again and it will be nice to spend a bit more time.

Lovely little library in this itsy bitsy town. 100 year old building, we were told, that has been updated with skylights. Amazing that such a small town has such a large, lovely library. Then again, this is EB White territory.

This little haven of gentleness and books resides quietly in the shadow of E.B. White and Roger Angell. Friendly hosts softly chatted with a nosey visitor from away. Free WiFi helps the world intrude even in Brooklin. Come and read a while.

Built in 1912, this tiny Greek Revival building looks like a sweet, old library. Step inside, though, and you will "Wow!" Renovated and updated in the past several years, this is a for-real, gorgeous, up-to-date library and is well-used and well-loved.
