If you (or anyone you know) would like to help support the library, take a chance on a weekend get-away at a beautiful hotel, restaurant and spa on Ocean Avenue, we would be happy to sell you a ticket. $10 per chance; $25 for three chances to win this total package worth $500.00. The Library is located at 18 Maine Street in Kennebunkport. For more information please call 967-2778.

The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library is funded primarily by you our friends and patrons.  40 percent of our annual  budget comes from the Town of Kennebunkport.  Fundraisers like this one, an annual appeal, ongoing book sale at the Perkins House and on Amazon.com, and our store items help us serve the needs of people in Kennebunkport, Kennebunk, Arundel, Cape Porpoise, Lyman, Alfred, Biddeford, Saco, Wells, Ogunquit, and many other towns in the general area.

Many thanks for your support (always!) and best wishes for a peaceful, healthy, holiday season.
