The Wiscasset Public Library was incorporated in 1920. It is, in a sense, the successor to the Wiscasset Social Library started in 1799.
The library's building is historic, too. It was completed in 1805 for the Lincoln and Kennebec Bank. In the Northwest corner of the basement was a "Jug Vault," a brick structure said to have resembled a large bean pot, the top of which was entered through a trap door in the floor of the room above. The library acquired the building in 1929.
The library is free for anyone to browse. Free internet access is available to all visitors. There is no need to be a library member. We have Wi-Fi so you may bring your laptop and use our connection.
