The East Blue Hill Public Library is in the heart of the village. Small in size, and rich in history, our public library offers patrons and visitors a unique collection of titles, historic artifacts and a sweet stop in our hectic lives. Features include a collection of local historical documents, a video library,  high speed internet access, and a children’s room. Every Saturday morning, starting at 10:30am throughout the year, the library also serves as a gathering place for village residents and visitors to share the week’s news and to catch up on each other’s lives. All are welcome.

LiteraryHub: In Praise of Small-Town Libraries
"Frequently, I was the only person in the building, other than our librarian, Viv. I lingered there on drowsy after-school afternoons because I loved the sweet damp smell of paper and glue slowly decaying, because I loved pulling some forgotten old hardcover from the shelves, and because, simply, I loved being in a room filled with books. Two rooms, actually. There was a small-town stillness, an atmosphere of benign neglect inside our little library that suggested the great works of Western lit were mine alone to discover."
