1892 - 2022
The first public library in Lee opened in October of 1892 on the 2nd floor of the town hall building and remained there until the weight of the books became too much for the building to support. In 1959, Lee voters decided to restore the Center School and make it the town's new library. In 1962, the old school was placed on wheels and moved in 3 hours to its present location at 9 Mast Rd.
