Hepburn Library of Lisbon

Mission Statement

"The Hepburn Library of Lisbon exists to provide quality service to the residents of Lisbon in an open and non-judgmental environment with free access to library materials in a variety of formats." (Adopted Nov. 2009)

Our Materials

We have a wide variety of materials that may be borrowed using your library card: books, magazines, movies and documentaries on DVD and VHS, audio books on tape and CD, and music CDs.

We also offer downloadable e-books that are compatible with most Kindles, Nooks, iPads, smartphones and other devices. All you need is a library card and an internet connection to access our Overdrive e-book system.

Programs and Services

The Library offers free high-speed internet with five desktop computers and four laptops. If you prefer to bring your own laptop or tablet, we offer free wi-fi accessible from most areas of the second floor.

We provide faxing, printing, and photocopying services at a nominal charge, in both black/white and color.

We offer a variety of programs for children and adults, including Family Movie Nights, Story Time, Summer Reading Programs, Battle of the Books and more.

Tours of the Library and collaborative programs with the local community are always welcome - just give us a call and let us know what you would like to do!

Looking for a special book? Let us know and we will try to obtain it for you through interlibrary loan if we don't have it on our shelves.

Community Room

The Library has a large community room and kitchen downstairs which is available for rental seven days a week. 

Currently, we host weekly/monthly meetings for the Lions Club, TOPS Group, 89'ers, Sportsmen, Trappers and others.

If you have a community organization looking for space, or if you wish to host a birthday party, family reunion, or other event, just give us a call or drop us an email for more information.


We have a spacious parking lot with three handicapped parking spots, an accessible entrance on the side of the building, and an elevator. If you are in need of any assistance, please let us know and we will do our best to help!
