COVID-19 Update

****IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT****After careful consideration, the Liberty Library has decided to close and cancel all programs until further notice. However, we know that with schools closed and people “social distancing,” having books and movies available can go a long way to help make your situation more tolerable. You can view items through our online catalog, but the request has been turned off. You can request it here. You will be able to pick items up on:

  • Thursday:  10:00-4:00  (Due to the Maine State Library  Coronavirus Conversations that have been scheduled for public library directions on Tuesday afternoons, there will no longer be pick-up hours on Tuesdays, but I have extended the hours on Thursday. If this time doesn’t work for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me, and we’ll work something out.)

You will not be allowed to come inside to browse materials. You will only be able to pick-up your requested items. Items can be returned in the Book Drop. Returned items will be wiped down and unavailable to borrow again for several days. If you cannot request online, you can email or call the library 589-3161, and I will do my best to meet your needs.  You can also write a list, put in an envelope, and drop in Book Drop. (Be sure to include your name, library number if you know it, and your phone number.)  Interlibrary loan has been suspended by the state until until April 10, 2020. 

Library computers will not be available but the wi-fi will be on and is accessible from your vehicle outside the library. You have to accept the library’s Acceptable Use policy if the last time you logged-on is greater than 24-hours.  Reminder that you can also download audio and eBooks from Download Library via CloudLibrary. However, I expect there are many others using that service since we share it with other libraries around the state. Additional audiobooks and eBooks were added to CloudLibrary this week. Never hurts to put items on HOLD. And there is always the Little Free Library outside!

Please contact me if you have questions. We want to help! You can help us by staying away if you are sick and remember to wash your hands before handling materials. Keep checking back for updates for when normal service will resume.
