WELCOME to the Buck Memorial Library website. We are happy to provide you with a new library card when you come visit. Additional services include Interlibrary loan for materials we don't have, and e-books and comics through the Cloud Library. Our library catalog can be searched from your own computer or phone. We hope to provide an excellent library experience for the Bucksport, Orland, and Verona Island communities. Stay tuned to this site or follow us on Facebook to learn about future plans, and events.

Donating Books to BML

For those interested in helping replace our collection due to our latent mold issue please read below. We appreciate your assistance.

  • Please contact the library before showing up with books, we are small, and have limited processing and storage space.

  • We only accept books in pristine condition, minimal marking, no stains, no smell.

  • Hardcovers are best, with dust jackets, paperbacks only if they are in very good condition

  • We do have an evolving list which we are happy to share, contact: director@bucklibrary.org

  • Consider making a cash donation (see the support us button at the bottom of our page).


Join us each week. Drop by the library from 4:00-5:30 and participate in some S.T.E.A.M. activities. Try Coding, Art, Building with Legos and other materials, we even have a Marble Run!
