the library bookstore

recycling the community’s books





194 Front Street, Bath ME 04530






Open Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.


Sponsored by the Friends of Patten Free Library.


Gently used books, books-on-tape and CD, DVDs, and puzzles for all ages are available for purchase thanks to a steady flow of donations from the community. Come enjoy a friendly, vibrant atmosphere with new selections added to the shelves daily. Great bargains can be found in this eclectic collection.




Books are shelved in categories for cooks, gardeners, artists, history buffs, poets, and mystery lovers to name a few. A colorful children’s section allows little ones to find their own favorites. Donations can be delivered to 194 Front St. during store hours, where Friends of the Library volunteers staff the store. This recycling opportunity can’t be beat. Keeping books out of the trash and offering them to other bibliophiles, including contributions of children’s books to the Book Cart at the Food Bank in Bath, is our goal.




All proceeds benefit Patten Free Library. For more information on the bookstore, please contact Sandy Weiss at or 443-2654. If you would like to volunteer, either contact Sandy or print and mail the Bookstore Volunteer Form to Sandy Weiss, Patten Free Library, 33 Summer Street, Bath, ME 04530.
