Peaks Island Branch opened in the Community Building at 129 Island Avenue in 1979.

The branch is open 20 hours/week offering adult and children’s programs, halloween stories and craftpublic computer access, free wifi service, and collections of books, magazines, movies, music, and more for year-round and seasonal residents and visitors. Islanders may request materials from any Portland library location, MaineCat, or Interlibrary Loan for pick-up at the branch. The branch coordinates the production of “The Peaks Island STAR,” an island newsletter. See our Holiday Schedule for planned closings.

The branch has its own active Friends group that supports the library’s mission through programming and extra offerings, such as a Peaks Island Authors and Illustrators shelf, a weekly movie program on Saturday evenings, and a monthly Book Discussion group. The group hosts an annual Book Sale that is a highly-anticipated community social event as well as a fundraiser.

For Summer and Temporary Residents
