My mom and I went to Maine last fall, in part because of E.B. White. It seemed only fitting to visit the library in his town to see the illustrations he donated and to meander. Great library with beautiful light.

E.B. White used to live up the road and helped fund this beautiful gem. This lovely library is the true town center, how fortunate for Brooklin!

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.
