Our Collection

The Libary's holdings can be described as deep, reflective of, and integral to the Hancock Point community. We have a strong fiction and mystery collection, as well as special sections for the state of Maine and Hancock Point authors. Our Youth Wing has been described as the "sweetest spot in Maine to cozy up with a book." The Youth collection contains classics, old community favorites and new books to excite every kind of reader.
