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. We invite you to share ideas and suggestions for how the library can best serve the needs of the community.

Grant Award

Our holiday week is filled with celebration. Buck Memorial Library will be installing heat pumps very soon! This project is made possible through a $15,000.00 grant from the Association for Rural & Small Libraries through the generosity of a regional partner foundation.


The Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) builds strong communities through professional development and elevating the impact of rural and small libraries. ARSL recognizes the uniqueness of small and rural libraries and is committed to providing an environment that encourages excellence within this community of practice, supporting their goals of service and speaking on behalf of this important constituency. Since 1 in 3 public libraries in the U.S. serve a population of fewer than 2,500 people, there is a great opportunity to support these library professionals that are often overlooked. We believe in the value of rural and small libraries and strive to create resources and services that address national, state, and local priorities for libraries situated in rural communities.

Winter is here, and it is time to close our front door  to keep the warmth in.
