Membership at the library allows you to borrow items from the South Berwick Public Library collection and other Maine Infonet Libraries for use at home. To apply for membership at the South Berwick Public Library please bring something to identify yourself with proof of residency.  (A driver’s license and utility bill will work fine.)

Residents of South Berwick, Berwick, North Berwick, Eliot and Rollinsford may get memberships at the South Berwick Library for free as part of our Interlibrary Collaborative. Please bring photo ID and proof of residence to get a membership.
