Thank you for visiting the Magnolia Library and Community Center website!


MLCC is a central hub in the Magnolia area of Gloucester, Massachusetts, located on the corner of Lexington Ave.


Our center has a rich history in Magnolia, having been founded by five summer residents in 1886. For more information on our history, please click here!

Regular Library hours are based on volunteer availability. Additionally, sometimes our Head Librarian is there on an "off" day by chance. 


Currently we are open:

Mondays 1-3

Wednesdays 10-2

Thursday 9-11

Saturdays 10-12

Please call (978) 335-8475

if you want to confirm that the Library is open or if you have other questions. 

If you prefer to browse online you can do so via our TinyCat site, where you can also place a book on hold. 

We are a non-profit organization, so we rely heavily on donations from patrons in our community. There are many ways to contribute!
