Standing since 1873, Nathan Freeman gave the building as a gift to the town that took a special place in his heart. See the unique nautical style of the library renovation from 1977 that enables both book enthusiasts and learners to experience the peaceful space. Enter the building to see a real live ship inside that completes the library's nautical theme. Climb to the top floor to view the harbor and the city.
