  • Was difficult to find, eventually it turned out we had to use a door right next to the Irish gift shop. The library is impeccable, great archives and reading area. The volunteers are very welcoming and there‚Äôs a lovely gallery that changes weekly
  • I've lived in the Seacoast my entire life and never noticed this place until recently. Inside is mountains of local history in the form of books, curios, and records. You can also rent from the library and sit and read a 50-100 year old book in a nice armchair. Definitely stop by at least once.
