Welcome

Stockton Springs Community Library is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 until further notice.  No library materials are to be lent out or returned during this time. 

The library’s wi-fi internet service is available to the public from outside the building. You can access it with your wi-fi enabled device from the safety of your car in the parking lot. Please maintain the mandated 6 foot physical distance guidelines and wipe surfaces down before and after you touch them if you sit/stand in the library’s gazebo or front porch. Thank you.  

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, three book clubs, a painting group, a genealogy club, and a gardening group meet regularly at the library. Tai Chi is available twice a week in the Town Office 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 so 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.

Make sure to check out our online Bulletin Board and new Calendar page, and subscribe to  SSCL News to read about our programs, special events, and library news.

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