    The Winthrop Public Library was originally opened on July 8, 1889 and contained 1,322 volumes. The original library construction was funded through a combination of private fundraising and a Town grant, and the original building location was referred to as “Packard Block” in early Town reports.
    On December 2, 1916 the library moved, and in a dedication ceremony that featured the president of Colby College, and Dennis’ Orchestra, Charles Bailey donated the beautiful rock faced and chiseled granite structure designed by prominent Maine architect John Calvin Stevens that we see on Bowdoin Street today. After moving to Bowdoin Street, the library became the Charles M. Bailey Public Library.
    Nearly 100 years later we cut the ribbon to the newly renovated library, designed by local architect Phil Locashio, and funded through a combination of private fundraising and a Town loan.
    Join us tomorrow morning at 9:30am as we cut the ribbon and open for regular library business!
