1906 Public Library, Farmington, Maine

[LIB6441] - In 1799, shortly after the Town of Farmington was incorporated (1794), a small group of residents organized a Social Library which circulated books until disbanding in 1856. There followed a few unsuccessful efforts at forming a library, and in 1890 the current Farmington Public Library Association was incorporated and is continuing to serve the community and the region. [From the website] Original building still in use.
