The Thompson Free Library is the public library serving Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.

In 1897 Dr. Elbridge A. Thompson purchased the land and started construction of the Thompson Free Library in memory of his wife Lucia Eddy Thompson.   Dr. Thompson was a surgeon for the Union Army for over three years, during the Civil War.  He came to Dover in 1866 and practiced medicine and surgery here for the next 37 years, until he retired in 1903.  On September 9, 1898 he presented the town of Dover with the key and the deed to the library.  Dr. Thompson also established a trust fund for the purchase of books and reading materials.  The library has continued to grow over the past 100 years with major additions in 1972 and 2007.
