This Historic Public Library in a Small Maine Town is Like a Storybook Come to Life
Tucked away in the charming little town of Hallowell, Maine is a sweet old stone building with a red double doors filled with wooden shelves lined with books of all genres. The Hubbard Free Library has served Hallowell and surrounding communities since the mid-1800s. The building design was inspired by an English country church. It still maintains many of the original architectural details today including stained glass and wooden beams and arches.
Imagine cozying up in one of the library chairs with a novel set in coastal Maine as the late afternoon light casts through the gorgeous stained glass designs. You will be transported to a storybook world while you browse the titles in the historic space.
Hubbard Free Library hosts many events for kids and families throughout the year, including singalong and story time with local musicians. The library offers free membership to Hallowell residents, and those located out of town can join for a small yearly fee.
