Winter Weather Days

Be sure to call the library at 596-0022 before venturing out to the library on days when there is considerable snow to be plowed. Our parking lot may be cleared but our volunteers may not be able to get out of their driveways so it's best to check. We will not consider books overdue if we're closed, and you won't be charged a fine.

In the meantime, on days when you head to the store to stock up for an upcoming storm, don't forget to stop by the library and stock up on books to keep you company while you're snowed in. They don't require any power, except if you want to stay up late to finish a good one- then you'll need that trusty flashlight under the covers!

Springtime- New Books, Expanded Service

While it may still be a bit rainy outside, we have been having lots of new books pushing their way on to our shelves. Many thanks to all who have dontated either funds or books to keep our collection as current as possible. If you don't yet have a card, be sure to stop in on Monday, Wednesday or Saturday to sign up for one. They're free, and they open up a world of reading and listening pleasure.

Our newest books are also showing on the South Thomaston library webpage (updatded monthly) and the Overdrive console always has new audio books ready to download.

Give us a call if you are looking for a book not in our collection. We can get it through Interlibrary loan from another library in Maine.  This fairly new service is free of charge for the first 10 books; after that we ask for a $2.50 return postage fee to help defray the cost of getting the book back to its home.  After all, they don't really fly, but we do enjoy this great service for only the cost of return postage.
