Library Card Amendment

The Wells Public Library has recently amended its Library Card Policy to allow legal residents and/or property owners to receive a Wells Public Library resident card. Previously, only legal residents of Ogunquit were included. We are very excited about this change, and welcome all Ogunquit property owners/residents, year-round or seasonal, to obtain a free library card.



Wells Public Library Newsletter

We now publish a quarterly newsletter including information on our adult and childrens programs, library news, and reminders about important library services and policies. 

If you live in Wells, your copy of the newsletter has been mailed. If you don't receive a copy, you can read it here anytime, or pick one up at the library! 

The quarterly newsletter for March-May was sent to press before our recent building issues.  We have updated our digital newsletter to reflect the changes we've had to make.  Please contact us at 646-8181 with any questions or concerns.
