About the Library


The mission of the Ellsworth Public Library is to provide quality materials, services, resources and lifelong learning opportunities which fulfill educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the entire community in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful, and businesslike.


The Ellsworth Public Library was established in May of 1924 when a book collection was established in the Dr. Deo C. Munger home. Soon after it was transferred to the Opera Hall, sharing the same room as the bowling alley. ​In March of 1925, the library moved to the Combacker building, and in 1932, the library moved again to the basement of the community hall. In 1975, the library moved once more into the upper space of the community hall which was the former theater. A renovation was completed in 1995 and is the present location of the Ellsworth Public Library. Click HERE for additional historical information about the library.
