Caribou Public Library

Caribou Public Library Facts

On February 20, 1887 a group of women from the Women's Christian Temperance Union (W.C.T.U.) met to discuss the possibility of creating a public reading room for the community. A committee was appointed to solicit funds to finance the undertaking and by March of the following year, the constitution and by-laws were in place. By 1906, the community's first public library was housed in the rear of a store at the corner of Main Street and Vaughn Avenue.

As the library looks to the 21st century, library staff will strive to give residents the competitive edge needed to thrive in today's information world by providing the appropriate technology and resources to meet their cultural, recreational, informational and educational needs.
