 Chincoteague Island Library
 “The Little Library That Could”

  Our Chincoteague Island Library serves the residents of Chincoteague, our Eastern Shore neighbors, and our many seasonal visitors.  Free and open to the public, the library is independent, supported by private donations and grants, and staffed by over 30 volunteers.  We are affiliated with the Eastern Shore Public Library (ESPL) sharing collections and following its rules and procedures.  Our collections include current and popular books, audio books, e-books, CDs, DVDs, a basic reference collection, magazines, and newspapers.  There are public computers for email, word processing, and surfing the net.  The Library also offers 24-hour wireless internet connection (password:  IslandLibrary).

   This year, the Chincoteague Island Library is celebrating 20 years of serving our community.  In addition to our year-round children’s programs and monthly book clubs, many special events are planned for 2015.  Special anniversary merchandise is available in our Library Benefit Shop as well as note cards, “Music to Read By” CDs, and a wide variety of used books.  Please check out our web site and our Facebook page for up-to-date information.



Beginning June 20th for grades K-12, readers can sign up to read and earn incentive prizes throughout the summer. For every 100 minutes of reading each week, a prize is earned. After 5 weeks and 500 minutes of reading, readers earn a ticket for a grand prize drawing. Up to 4 drawing tickets can be earned during the 9-week program.**


**The Library is offering a fine amnesty for Summer Reading Challenge participants that complete 200 minutes of reading. Additionally, library fines on children's reading materials have been reduced to 10 cents per day effective June 1, 2016.
