IIT Nature Activity Kits

Available All Summer!

Are you bored and looking for something to do? Ask about our Nature Activity Kits, provided by the Islesboro Islands Trust! Every kit comes with an activity meant to help you learn about the natural world around our island and comes with everything you'll need for the activity or experiment enclosed, as well as all the instructions! Come pick them up at the front desk!

Geocaches, Library Style

All Summer Long!

Looking for something exciting to do? Why not go on a real life treasure hunt! Stop by the library to pick up your instructions, hunt down the coordinates, walk the island trails, and find the clues you need to uncover your prize! And while you're at it, you might just find your new favorite story while you're out there!

Good luck, adventurers!

Don't See What You Want in the Library?
Here's How to Get It!

Inter-library Loan

In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.


Request for Purchase

We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think a book, DVD, magazine, newspaper, game, or database should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out. You can make requests by clicking here.


Cloud Library

Hundreds of e-books and audio books are available on Cloud Library through our website. Just go to, click on “On-line Resources,” and scroll down to Cloud Library. Once you enter your library card number and download the appropriate app, you can access fiction, non-fiction, best sellers, classics, young adult, and childrens’ books and enjoy these resources  on your personal media devices.
