Support the Library

Did you know?

The Patten Free Library is a nonprofit public libraryfree for all residents of Arrowsic, Bath, Georgetown, West Bath, and Woolwich.

With the help of generous donors, Patten Free Library is able to fundraise to support the work we do and provide you with the excellent library services you rely on. Whether you are borrowing a bookattending a program, using our free computers, or visiting the Sagadahoc History and Genealogy room, the Patten Free Library is ready to open doors to a brighter tomorrow for you, and all our patrons.
