The Library maintains an up-to-date collection of almost 14,000 materials. New acquisitions are prominently displayed and
highlighted in the monthly Island Calendar. We encourage suggestions for
titles and are happy to accept gifts under the library's gift policy.
There is a large, bright children's section with comfortable window seats
for reading. The Young Adult
section is newly expanded. Our extensive Maine section is of interest to locals and visitors.
We have a wide selection of Maine
place histories and family genealogical books.
books, games, puzzles, music,
and language tapes are also available to patrons. The video collection is extensive at over 2000 titles and includes
both VHS and DVD formats.
There are four public use computers with both color and black and white
printers. A full service
photocopier is available for big and small jobs, and a scanner for both
documents and slides.
The fax machine (207 846-4358) can be
used to send documents during library hours, and can receive 24/7. We will
call you if you receive a fax.
A shredder is available.
The Chebeague Island Library was started in a classroom at the Island
School in 1965 and moved to
its new home in 1990. With
many donations and the tireless efforts and expertise of volunteers, the
Library has grown to its current collection of almost 14,000 materials.
The Library stands as a testament to the Island community’s
desire for knowledge and its willingness to make it happen.

fundraising arm of the Library supplements our budget with proceeds from a
variety of special events and sales. Book
sales, note cards, posters, island phone books and gala events provide
much needed income to ensure the continuation of the Library’s programs
and services to the community.
Library has a long history of putting volunteers to work. There are many ways to connect with the Library and community:
“covering the desk”, shelving, data entry, special projects or sharing
in one of the many Library programs. Come and see if we have a job that is right for you!
