The small local libraries welcome both visitors and community members with open arms and books. Visit one to learn more about local history, relax and take a break, or get ideas on what to see and do while touring the Byway for a day or an extended stay. They are also a great place to use Wi-Fi if you need it!

Dorcas Library

The Dorcas Library sits on oceanfront property along a small cove in Prospect Harbor, at the end of the Byway. Relax and read a book indoors or outside with an ocean view. Right across the street is a small park to have your lunch and let the kids run around.
