Welcome to Orono: Home

Welcome to Orono, Maine!

As a new member of the Orono community, we know you have lots of questions about settling in, things to do, and services in the community. Take a look through this guide for recommendations and resources, and welcome to the area!


There are many local libraries that you can visit, in addition to the Fogler Library on campus at UMaine. Most towns have their own library which you can visit, and you can get a library card for the library in your town. In addition, all residents of the state of Maine are eligible for a Bangor Public Library card, which also grants access to the state's database subscriptions.


Closer to UMaine are two libraries: the Orono Public Library and the Old Town Public Library, which are wonderful spots to check out books, attend lectures, or join a social group.
