Our Library

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.
~Henry David Thoreau


The Mexico Public Library attempts to offer a wide variety of books in all areas. In addition to the customary sections of Fiction, Nonfiction, Biography, and Reference, we also display shelves of new arrivals, Classics, Short Stories, and a collection of books pertaining to Maine. Downstairs,we have a growing collection of Children’s and Young Adult books. picture books,fiction, nonfiction, and biographies.

We also try to acquire award winning books such As Newbery Award, Caldecott Award, and Maine Student Book Award books for children and young adults. The Library has a
growing collection of videos, DVDs, and audio books, available for sign-out to patrons. Also, we have periodicals available for sign-out.

We have internet accessible computers for public use. These computers also have
electronic encyclopedias, atlases, and several learning games for children.
Each computer also has an electronic card catalog available to patrons. This
enables our patrons to search the catalog by title, author, and subject to see
for themselves what is available here in our Library. We are completely
automated in our circulation and card catalog.

Our goal is to serve the needs of the community.
