NEW LIBRARY COOKBOOK  The New Library cookbook are for sale at the Library for $10.   Sale of the cookbook will benefit the Building expansion Fund.  On Saurday at the Mini book sale the library staff prepared a couple of items from the new cook book, the triple chocolate brownies are addictive.  Contribute toward a good cause, acquire a good cookbook at a reasonable price, and try some new foods using recipes by the staff and the community of the Ellsworth Public Library.



On Saturday November 15th from 9AM to 1PM we held a mini booksale on the main floor of the Library and we raised a total of $250.10 in the short time.  Thanks to the volunteer who helped price the more valuable book, the Friends who manned the sale and the Library for providing the space for this successful sale.


Donations of books in good condition are always welcome; please just leave them at the Library during normal hours.

Totes!  We just got a new shipment of the Blue totes in and they are still $10, so please purchase one for yourself and remember they do make wonderful gifts.

Welcome Friends!

The Friends of the Ellsworth Public Library are community members working on behalf of the library to raise funds and increase community involvement in the library.


Volunteers always have a splendid time at the book sale. Thank You to all who participated in these events because through your participation we raise funding for the many programs not funded by the city.  If you can volunteer but were not called please leave a name and phone number at the circulation desk or get it touch with Melanie Zador.

Program Schedule

The fall programming is diverse and a lot of fun for all to see.  Your donations made it happen.  For current programming please check our newsletter and the library web site/Facebook.
