The Madawaska Valley Public Library was established in 1960 and throughout the years has seen much growth, not only in content, but in physical facilities as well.

The Madawaska Valley Public Library has become an integral part of the community's life. It is committed to the growth and overall benefit of its patrons and our community as a whole.
