Welcome to Stockton Springs Community Library (SSCL).   We have been serving the residents and visitors to Stockton Springs, Maine and surrounding localities since 2001.

Situated in the historic Colcord House, located on the corner of Main & Station Streets, the building, which is owned by and shares space with the Stockton Springs Historical Society, has a cozy, welcoming atmosphere.


SSCL plays an important role in the social fabric of the community. The library sponsors special events and ongoing programs for a variety of ages and interests. For example, two book clubs, a painting group, a genealogy club, and a gardening group meet at the library. The Library offers Tai Chi twice a week in the Town Hall meeting room.  In addition to local author events, we have offered an extensive speakers series on issues of interest to seniors.  For the kiddos we have a Lego group, reading programs, special movie nights, costume parades and children’s book events featuring Maine authors and artists. And much more.

The library collection includes a wide assortment of new & old books, fiction & non-fiction in print and audio.  We also have large selection of both new & classic movies and quite a few popular television series.   Of course our patrons are not limited to what we have on the shelves.  Patrons can download books through Maine InfoNet, check out books on our Kindles, and borrow books that we don’t own through an Inter-Library loan.

We thank you for your patronage and look forward to seeing you soon.
