Is the barcode on your library card fading? We have discovered that the barcodes printed with a thermal printer tend to fade after a while. Reciprocal borrowing libraries will not be happy if they cannot scan your barcode. If you have found this to be a problem, please return your card to the library. A new barcode printed on a laser printer will be affixed to your card. Sorry for the inconvenience.

.

Please do not try to do an interlibrary loan request from another library using your reciprocal borrowing card because it will not work. The library that receives it, especially a Minerva library such as Belfast Free Library, will not know who requested it. Please use MILS  or MaineCat to request an item, and have it sent to the Liberty Library. Borrowing a physical item from one of the reciprocal borrowing libraries is another way to do an interlibrary loan. Just people doing the moving instead of sending the item to your home library!

Pie Sale!

Sat, May 25, 9:00am – ’til sold out.
This Pie Sale will be held outdoors in front of the library, weather permitting.

Plant Sale

Sat. June 1, 9:00am-2:00pm (Rain date Sunday)

We need your extra seedlings, houseplants, and perennials to sell at our Plant Sale. However, some extra precautions must be taken when sharing plants from your garden. Shake off dirt, wash the roots, basically get down to bare roots, and then pot up the plants in a bagged soil. Do not leave potted plants sitting on the ground where Amynthas worms might find their way into the pot.

 

Please label plants with their name and other helpful information, such as color, size, growing conditions, etc.

.

Donations for the Plant Sale can be dropped off at the library on Friday afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00pm. Please let us know if you need pots or need to make other arrangements for drop off.

Thank you for your support!
