Masks must be worn and hands sanitized when visiting; we will quarantine returned items for 24 hours, which delays the removal from patron accounts.
The safety of our patrons and staff is our top priority. We continue to monitor our local situation and will adjust accordingly so stay tuned.
- Request any available item in our catalog. Don’t know what you want, ask a librarian for a selection. There are three possible ways to make a request:
- Login to your account and place a hold,
- Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Or call us at 207 276 3333
- Your request will be filled as soon as possible; items will be bagged and labeled with your name. We will call or email you when your order is ready and confirm when you are able to pick your items up. Pick up your items outside by our front entry. If you are not able to arrange pickup within 7 days of your request being filled, the item will be placed back into circulation. The checkout period begins when the request is filled.
