Frequently Asked Questions

When will the library reopen?

Beginning Tuesday, May 18th, the library will reopen for browsing with restrictions. Read the Library's Reopening Plan to see a schedule of browsing hours and other important information. 

When should I return the items I borrowed before the library shut down?

You may return your borrowed items to the library through the book drop any time. Please do not drop off any donations, however–we are not accepting donations of books or other materials during this time.

If I get multiple email notices about my materials, do I need to make more than one appointment to pick them up?

No, you do not need to make more than one curbside pickup appointment if you’ve received multiple separate emails that your holds are ready. We will bundle them all together for you.

What online resources do you offer?

The library provides access to a number of resources you can enjoy from home using your card, including eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, streaming movies, and magazines. Click here for complete details on these resources.

Are you offering any programs?

Our online programming currently includes the Tuesday Reader Book Group, meeting on Zoom. Beginning June 19th, we are offering story time every Saturday at 10am (weather permitting) outside on the Village Green. Masks will not be required, but please allow for adequate distancing. We also encourage you to explore the Maine State Library's Calendar for online events happening all over the state.
