Summer reading for Kennebunkport summer getaways

If there’s one item that’s high on the list of things people hope to do with their limited leisure time, it’s catch up on their reading.  Many guests at Captain Fairfield Inn simply peruse the ‘Newsstand’ on the complimentary iPads we provide for guest use.  

Library near Kennebunkport B&B

Louis T. Graves Library in Kennebunkport, Maine

Still more leaf through current magazines provided in their rooms and in our boutique hotel’s lounge overlooking the Kennebunkport River Green.  Like us, though, you may like to tackle a tome cover to cover when you travel.  

Need a beach read?  Forgot or finished your fiction?  Just around the corner from Captain Fairfield Inn is Louis T. Graves Public Library, pictured here.  They are open seven days a week and have a helpful program allowing our guests to gain temporary membership with a small, refundable deposit.  Borrow books to your heart’s content!

In case you’re not a speed reader or you’re in the market for a literary souvenir, here are a couple of locally owned bookstores in the Kennebunks you could delve into:

Kennebooks has a little bit of everything housed in their bright blue building in Lower Village Kennebunk.  The inside is crisp and professional, making it easy to find a Maine publication or a bestseller, and their craft & hobby section is always worth a look.

Mainely Murders is a specialty shop full of mysteries, true crime novels, and thillers.  At this indie store with a blood red door, uncovering the right find for you amidst fully stocked shelves may be as great a challenge as solving the case in its pages.
