Jesup Memorial Library

34 Mount Desert Street
Bar Harbor, ME 04609


The Jesup nourishes minds, enhances lives, and builds community.

We are a vibrant center for educational exchange, creative community collaboration, and knowledge-sharing where we connect people to ideas, people to information, and people to people.  The library is a place where possibilities and realities share space.  We are a center for creative community pursuits, opening doors with our activities and resources, for those who live here and those who visit.

The Jesup offers programming that is inclusive and expansive, for people of all ages, and provides space for other community groups to do the same.

Within our treasured building, rich in history and tradition, we integrate new technology to serve as the hub for access to information from sources local and worldwide.  We remain stewards of our heritage and are committed to the joy of reading.
