Madawaska Public Library provides far more than just traditional library
services. We also serve as a genealogical resource for the greater
Acadian community, a multi-use meeting center for all residents, and a
connection to the wider world of learning and information through our
free internet access.
The Madawaska Public Library provides Madawaska and surrounding areas with many services. We provide up-to-date fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, books-on-tape, videos, literacy books, large print and inter-library loan to our patrons.
In our Special Collection Room we offer books and tapes on Maine and on genealogy and a large collection of old photos of the area. We have a computer which contains genealogy of families of the area and a micro-film reader-printer for films of census of Aroostook and the St. John Valley Times Newspaper. We also offer internet access for our patrons.
In 1991, a new addition was added to the library. This doubled our size and we added a new office, conference room, replaced the roof and furnace, and made the building handicap accessible.
The library is governed by a Board of Trustees. The library mission statement is to assemble, organize, preserve and make easily available materials which will provide stimulation, education and recreation for all patrons.
