The mission of the Vassalboro Public Library is to provide a welcoming environment to all community members and visitors, and support youth and community development through yearly programs. We encourage reading for enjoyment, information literacy, community interaction, and lifelong learning.
The library staff and trustees support the freedom to access books and information in order to learn and discover at all stages of life.
The library is for community use. Please reach out with ideas and support for the library or to sponsor a program.
