MaineCat is a Statewide Catalog that combines and links library collections across Maine, and Liberty Library members are now able to request from MaineCAT. A single search scans more than 3 million unique titles and nearly 8 million items. Remember to always start your search in the MILS catalog. You can access our catalog by choosing ‘SEARCH THE CATALOG‘ in the header, top right. This MILS Help Sheet is also available on the website > HELP > MILS HELP or ask for one at the library.

Reciprocal Borrowing will not be available except at MILS libraries until further notice .

hoopla© users need to add your PIN to their ‘Library Settings’ before you to borrow additional titles. CloudLibrary users also need to add their PIN. Patron accounts should not be disrupted in terms of active checkouts or holds since the barcode that identifies the patron has not changed.

CDC recommends that masking in public settings is not required in any county facing low or medium levels of coronavirus risk. (Currently, the risk is ‘Medium’ for Waldo Co. Check for updates here.) In response to these new guidelines, wearing face coverings when at the library is optional.

Knitters and Crocheters

It is the time of year when thoughts go to the coming winter and keeping our smaller residents warm in the midst of the long, cold season. We are collecting mittens and hats for the children of Waldo County, so get your knitting needles and crochet hooks clicking and clacking  soon to fill our basket!

.

As in the past, the need is great for mittens in small sizes, up to age 5, for the Head Start program at WaldoCAP. The mittens we bring there are distributed throughout Waldo County. They also can use some hats in small sizes for the children and will take some hats and mittens for older children and adults for Family Services as well.

.

Walker School in Liberty is always so appreciative of small and larger mittens and hats for the children who attend school there.

.

We will not be collecting new and used coats this winter. I hope you can locate another place who will welcome them.

.

Need yarn for your projects?

There is lots of yarn in the basket. Stop in and pick up some. Patterns are available: (more…)

Digital Maine Library

Do you know about the Digital Maine Library? I feel it is an overlooked resource. It provides Maine residents access to online resources that include a collection of full text articles and abstracts from magazines, newspapers, journals and reference. It also provides students, business people, public library patrons, and higher education students and educators online learning tools. Learn more
