What our patrons say

Patron for 30 years

I appreciate the friendliness of the entire staff, their willingness to be flexible, their enthusiasm, their communication skills, the promptness of retrieving books I order, and the wide variety of library selections. I LOVE the North Gorham Library.

New resident

I'm a new resident of North Gorham and have been so delighted to find this special little library. The librarians have been so friendly and given me tips about books, local hikes, and history of the area. I can't wait to get more involved with the library and the community.

Patron for 21 years

Our family has been using NGPL for 21 years, since we moved to Standish. I have loved the convenience, the local community feel, and the incredible selection.

Patron for 10 years +

Thanks to the Windham library I was introduced to the North Gorham library, which is near my home. I have enjoyed the book club and some volunteering there for over 10 years. it is a very warm and welcoming place with a great selection of books.

Coming since childhood

My grandmother, Josephine Scholl, was a contributor to the library for years. She thought it was important that children have access to books. I also brought my son here when he was a child. The library has a great selection of books for all ages, and each time I go in, there seems to be a neighbor there to say hi to.

Patron for five years

We are so fortunate to have the most helpful and nicest librarians at a library so conveniently located to us. We appreciate you and thank you!

Regular patron

I love coming into the library for a warm and friendly greeting.
