The Somesville Library is a quaint community space in the village of Somesville, located in Mount Desert, Maine. Walking in the door feels like stepping back in time, yet patrons have access to a contemporary collection of fiction and free Wi-Fi.

The Somesville Library was established over 130 years ago.  Our mission remains to serve both year-round and summer visitors of  Somesville through programming, service, and community-building.

For a small library, our collections are quite remarkable. Our librarian keeps the library stocked with the most interesting and readable fiction, non-fiction, biographies, books about Maine and children's selections. 

Find special programs and upcoming community events like our winter soup and bread, annual books and blueberries sale, and children's programs.
