For over 160 years, the Witherle Memorial Library has served the public in the town of Castine, Maine, and its environs by providing diverse informational, recreational, and educational resources for all age groups. Housed in a beautiful Beaux Arts facility built in 1913, the Witherle combines traditional qualities of personal service provided by well-trained staff in a comfortable setting with the latest tools in online research and materials access. The library is part of Castine’s historic district listed on the National Register of Historical Places.

Whether you wish to tour a landmark, peruse the collection, check your email using high-speed internet, attend a program or book discussion, or simply enjoy a quiet place to read, you are welcome at the Witherle.
