Orrington Public Library is a small public library located in the Center Drive School complex.

Daytime and evening hours provide patrons with efficient library service in an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming.
Getting a library card:
Adult residents may register for free borrowing privileges by filling out an application card at the circulation desk and presenting a current piece of mail showing a street address as proof of residency. A phone bill, cable bill, or a copy of a lease are also acceptable.
Students currently enrolled at Center Drive School may obtain free borrowing privileges by filling out a card and returning it with a parent signature.
Non-residents may apply for borrowing privileges by paying the current fee established by the Library Committee.
Circulation and Fines:
All circulating materials including books, periodicals, audio books, CDs and older encyclopedias may be checked out for 3 weeks. We no longer charge overdue fines; however, for those patrons so inclined, there is a guilt jar on the front desk.
We will gratefully accept gifts of money, donations of new and used books, and other materials in good condition as long as no restriction is placed on their use. We do not accept Reader’s Digest condensed books, textbooks, or back issues of National Geographic magazine.
