About Us

The Orr’s Island Library is a community library open year round to all residents and visitors to the Town of Harpswell. It has a significant collection of  mysteries and other fiction, children’s books, audios, CDs and DVDs, as well as reference books and wireless computer access. We also have a growing collection of Maine-related books and genealogical material.

The library runs children’s program every Wednesday in July, and the facility is available to community organizations for meetings and workshops year round.
