This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student. More info about student projects.


In 1902, the town of Islesboro voted to fund a town library, to be located in the Pendleton school. After finding the schoolhouse too hard to heat, the town moved the books to this small house owned by Captain Fields C. Pendleton, who rented it to the town for $3 a month. Although the building was too small to properly house the collection, the library remained there for sixteen years. Alice L. Pendleton was the first librarian.

The sign on the building reads "Islesboro Free Library 1902."
