Library Facebook

Due to a problem with the library director's Facebook page being hacked, and not having any other admins on the page, there seems to be no other option than to recreate the CPL page. This post should serve to prove the legitimacy of the new page. Anyone with interest in the library please go to the new "Charleston Public Library - Maine" page on Facebook and like us to continue to keep up with the library. We will also be updating with the ladies in the town office when they open next on Tuesday.


Library Opening This Sunday 7/16/23

So, while we still have much polishing to do, the library has reached a point where we can officially welcome patrons. We have catalogued approximately 65% of our materials and anticipate everything to be ready for a grand opening for this year's Old Home Days on September 16th to include merchandise for sale and a visit from local author Kaitlyn Furge Rollins. She will be performing a reading of one of her children's books from the "Peeka The Penguin" book series. There are a lot of exciting additions we are looking forward to between now and September. In the mean time come on in Sundays-Wednesdays from 4-7 pm to look around and pick up your library card.


NOTICE! - Office Closure

The Town Office will be closed from June 19-27th 2023 for much needed renovations. Call before coming to make sure we are open after the 27th. Thank you for your understanding!


Charleston Public LIbrary

While you're checking out the new website, why not head over to Facebook and like/follow Charleston Public Library? We have a paltry 3 followers. :( As we get closer to opening, and get new computers, and new shelves, and many other exciting things, we will be documenting it all. We will also be exploring people's interest in book groups, story times, and other activities. I will be perusing the library and occasionally posting reviews/overviews of our books to help make our patrons aware of some of what we have to offer. Hope to see you there.
