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 Features include a collection of local historical documents, a video library, high speed internet access, and a children’s room.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.

Great Article on 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.”
Holiday Caroling at the Library
We had lousy weather but a great turnout for caroling on Dec. 23! Instead of venturing out into the ice and cold, our group sang carols around the fireplace. The group included several members of Ella Capella, who along with our carol leader Phil Norris, kept us (reasonably) in tune.
