Remember, during winter months if the weather is bad, to check our Facebook page or call the library during our usual hours to see if we are there before you try driving to the library, to see if we are able to open. Spring will come soon!
January 17, 2019: It is tax season, which gives us all a chance to support our local public libraries. As you fill in your Maine income tax form, please consider saying yes to the Maine Public Library Fund check-off — it doesn’t add much to your tax bill, but it provides opportunities for Maine libraries via the Maine Public Library Fund, which provides grants to all Maine libraries, large and small, for help with basic programs and services. Thanks for your involvement and support!
We love receiving book donations from people. Right now, we cannot accept any donations, due to construction and space constraints. As soon as we know what our use of space will be when the addition opens, we’ll let you know when we can accept books again. Thanks so much for your support!
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT PARKING IS LIMITED TO THE LOWER LEVEL AND ENTRANCE IS ONLY OFF THE PORCH. WE ALSO DO NOT HAVE BATHROOM FACILITIES AT THIS TIME DUE TO CONSTRUCTION.
