ABSTRACT
The article features the Campobello Public Library in New Brunswick. The library was founded by Mary Otis Porter and Kate Gannett Wells in 1887 operated in a room at Porter's home but funds were raised and an official library was unfolded in 1899 with an added museum room. A children's room was added in 1967. It became part of the New Brunswick provincial regional library system in 1974. During summer, it holds reading programs and an auction for fundraising.
