The Chincoteague Island Library is a privately-supported free library that serves the residents of Chincoteague Island and Northern Accomack County, Virginia, and many seasonal visitors.

Our mission is to promote reading, a love of books, and literacy, and to preserve the history of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

We have an extensive collection of books available for lending both on our shelves and through our cooperative relationship with the Eastern Shore Public Library. We also have six computers and wireless internet access available for the general public and the many visitors to the island.


UPDATE ON REPAIRS: The Chincoteague Island Library remains closed for repairs. Unfortunately, the reopening date has been changed to Thursday, February 19th. If all goes according to this new schedule, the books, furniture, and computers will be returned to their places and the Chincoteague Island Library will re-open on Thursday, February 19 at 1:00 PM. Please check the Chincoteague Island Library Facebook page for updates and more info. (If you have books that need to be returned, please use the book drop on the handicapped ramp).

A book drop is available for after-hours returns.

We are closed on Sundays and all national holidays.
