Vassalboro Library

The Vassalboro Library was founded in 1909 and has been associated with the town since 1911. The library is managed by the trustees of the Vassalboro Public Library Association and the town of Vassalboro currently provides about 80 per cent of the funding of the library. The original library burned down in 1979 and moved to its current location in 1980. In 2000 an addition was added to the library with all the funds coming from donations to the Vassalboro Public Library Association. The current librarian is Brian Stanley.



Vassalboro Library does now hold an ongoing year round book-sale during the libraries regular operating hours. Monday and Friday 12-6 and Wednesday and Saturday 10-4p

The Underground Railroad: Retracing the Tracks.
with Pamela Cummings.
Saturday, May 21 starting at 10am at the Vassalboro Grange

Please register here: https://forms.gle/F11bz7UVbCLWup3B9

An illustrious walk back in time to discuss the history of the Underground Railroad and its relevance and significance to Maine's total and accurate history. As part of this discussion I explore the places that were hidden all around us in plain sight, each with its own story begging to be told and lessons waiting to be shared. Those with eyes look and those with ears, hear. It's all around us.
