About the Peru Free Library

The Peru Free Library, originally located in a rented storefront, opened its doors to the

public on October 23, 1915. The library owned 225 books and yearly membership was

one dollar.

Today, the library's permanent home is a classic red brick Colonial Revival built in

1928 from a bequest of Horatio Baker. Our collection comprises 18,000+ titles and

membership is free. Books, magazines, music CD's, DVD's audio books, and e-books

are available for circulation. Our bright and welcoming Children's Room offers a large

children's collection. The library, as a member of the Clinton, Essex, Franklin Library

System, provides an extensive interlibrary loan service. Six high speed internet

computers are available for public use, as well as WiFi. Our library is known as "The

Green Library" as all our electricy comes from the sun, from solar panels on our roof. 

Our backyard is planted with both a community flower and vegetable garden.

Please visit us soon and see all the Peru Free Library has to offer.
