Temporary Closure

Out of caution for our community, volunteers, and staff, the library will be closed through the end of April. As we are echoing the public school closures and the Maine stay at home order that date could change. All events and room rentals have been cancelled.

April 1st will be the last day we offer book delivery or pickup to our patrons.

Here's how to schedule a delivery or contact free pickup in the library parking lot:

  1. Browse our catalog to find books you want.

  2. Use the "Request Hold" button on the right to make your request. 

  3. Use the comment section to indicate pickup or delivery and if you prefer Wednesday evening or Saturday morning.
    Call or email us. Give us your name, address, the titles and whether you'd like them delivered on a Wednesday night or a Saturday morning.

  4. We will confirm your request before delivering.

These resources may be helpful until you can visit us in person again:
