The Patten Free Library has over 100 periodicals available to read  in the library or borrow for 3 weeks at a time. Would you like to sponsor a magazine? We spend over $6,000 in magazine and newspaper subscription each year. With the help of many supporters, we are able to offset this cost. If you are interested in sponsoring a periodical, please email our Development Director, Samantha Ricker, at or call at 443-5141 ext 19.
