 WINTERPORT MEMORIAL LIBRARY REOPENING JUNE 1st!!!

We’ll return to our normal summer hours beginning June 1st-

Tuesdays and Thursdays 2-7:00 and Wednesdays and Fridays 9-4:00.   

As with all public places, we have to follow the guidelines established by the CDC and our state governor.  We must keep you safe, as well as the librarians. 

The library guidelines include:

*Do not come to the library if you are feeling sick

*Masks required at all times for ages 2 and up

*Curbside service will still be available as an option

*Limited capacity in building- 2 library patrons or 1 family at a time

*Visits limited to 15-30 minutes

*Returning library items will be placed in the book drop before entering

*Use sanitizer station upon entering

*Maintain six feet social distancing

*One computer will be available for essential functions-not games; 30 minute limit

 

     We look forward to having you come inside the library again and browse for your books.  We’re excited to show you our beautiful remodeled space.  Two of the new additions you’ll see are a new window seat in the adult room (Finally, seating in that room!) and a new bookcase in the children’s room.  These were funded by a grant from the Treat Foundation.  And new books!  There are many new books that have been added to the library since the building was last open and more new books continue to arrive!  

     More big news!  Did you notice I keep saying “we” and “librarians”?  We are excited to have a new addition to our library staff!  Her name is Reba Stewart and she will be at the library on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Reba, like myself, has several years of previous library experience and we are very excited to be working together.  We look forward to helping the library to grow and become more of a destination over this year and the years to come.  Reba and I will be working together at the library throughout May as we continue curbside service.  

     Other happenings in June- You will start to see some repair work happening on the library exterior.  The chimney and the slate roof will be receiving repairs.

     At this time, we are still restricted from resuming programs and gathering inside the library.  However, we are hoping by late summer that we may be able to have a large book sale/ yard sale outside and maybe some other socially distanced outside events.  Reba and I are also putting together plans for a children’s summer reading program.

     So, stay posted and come to the library!  Happy reading everyone!

See you soon!

Librarians:

Susan and Reba
