“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”

Dear Supporter of Maxwell Memorial Library,

Maxwell Memorial Library’s primary mission is to provide support and critical services to the Camillus community and beyond. In following Albert Einstein’s quote above, we want more people to know where we are and what we do!

More than simply providing check out services for books, Maxwell is brimming with opportunities for the community to come together, learn, grow, and strengthen ties. Although we are housed in a beautiful former church built in 1868, Maxwell offers up-to-the-minute technology services including free internet access and computers for community use, reference resources, online books and much more. Multiple book clubs for adults, storytimes for emerging readers, specially designed teen activities, informative sessions on a variety of topics, and fun programming to spark your creative juices fill up our calendar pages every day of the year. There is always something going on at Maxwell!

While we receive funds from the town to support much of our budget, Maxwell still needs to raise additional funds so we can offer an expanding, diverse range of programming to meet the community’s changing needs, as well as enhance our physical and online collection of reading material. For 105 years, we’ve provided a warm, welcoming, and inclusive space to everyone in our community and we have so much more we want to do!
