Library Expansion Project

Rice Library building new


Transforming to the 21st-Century Library


Kittery’s Victorian-era Rice Pubic Library has been a beloved institution since opening in 1888. Now, the library is undergoing a 21st-century transformation: a renovation and expansion that will create a larger, fully accessible, more efficient, and safer library in one location.


The Rice Library Board corporation invites you to contribute to their Capital Campaign to bring a fully-realized vision of a 21st-century library to life.
