Dear Friends and Neighbors!

  • Allow us to limit capacity to 5 visitors as a time.

  • Limit children’s visits to 1 per parent.

  • Limit use of the elevator to 1 person per trip.

The Teen Center remains closed and the Makerspace activities, Xbox, and Oculus Rift are not available at this time.

The second floor Adult Reading Room is available by appointment only. Capacity is limited to 2 at a time.

Computer use is by appointment only.

By cooperating with the above, we can maintain our Maine DECD Covid-19 Prevention certification and continue restoring our library services throughout the summer.  



Summer Reading Registration begins Friday, June 2, 2020!

Summer Reading this year will begin with our usual paper-based logs and we will introduce Beanstack, a comprehensive, internet-based, all-ages library partner, later this summer. The theme this summer is “Imagine Your Story!” and we hope that readers all ages, from toddler through adult, and all levels, will enjoy the Beanstack activities, challenges, and easy logging experience. Prizes will be announced throughout the summer.

We have about 200 Summer Reading launch bags for kids. Each bag contains a notebook, colored pencils, a button, and an initial reading log to get you started. For those who complete the registration and the log, we will be happy to create your Beanstack account and enter your first log of information for you!

For our adults engaging in summer reading, we will again be part of the state-wide ReadME program. This year’s books were selected by Maine author Lily King. The titles are Vigilance of Stars and Roughhouse Friday. We expect to have the books available in the near future, but we welcome advance reservations.

Our Hours during Stage 1
