  • I would rate this Library higher if the librarians respected one of the most characteristic features of a library...shhhhh! I visit this library often and the librarians chat CONSTANTLY. And not even in hushed tones, but in conversational voices that carry throughout the room(sometimes even shouting to one another). Nor have I have heard a loud visitor, on the phone or otherwise, been reminded to lower their voices. Other than that, it's a beautiful historic building with a great selection of books in great location. One of the loudest libraries I have ever been too, it could be compared more to a cafe rather than a library. Also, has a lack of places to plug into on the entrance floor, downstairs has more power outlets.
  • Community engaged dog friendly library from 1911. Pleasant and relaxing book heaven.
  • Just commenting that @Jessup Library I received interested and professional service with solving a problem. As I was finishing, I became aware of staff busily engaged with patrons--young and vintage. All of the above in the fabulous Jessup building on a beautiful morning in Maine.
  • very loud for a library. visitors loudly using cellphones and librarians chatting incessantly all afternoon without regard for others.
  • Beautiful historic building, great staff.
