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!

No Action Figures wanted - Only Real People Need Apply

As you know, the South Thomaston Public Library is staffed entirely by volunteers. Some of this group has decided however to head south for the winter and  the energies of the remaining group are being stretched.  We really don't want to have to resort to Librarian Action Figures.  We want real people to help!!

We have openings available on Saturdays from 10-12 or 12-2, on Wednesdays from 2-4, and occasionally on Mondays from 1-3 to work at the circulation desk helping patrons check out books, to help with shelving materials, or to help users on the computer.  Whatever your skills, we probably have a need to fill with them.

Duties are very simple, and we provide training and support. This is a great way to meet your fellow townspeople, get first dibs on new books coming in, and keep up to date on what's happening. If you can work even one 2 hour shift a month, the load will be lightened for all of us. Please consider being part of our fun team.

In addition to the traditional library work, we are also looking for a knitting instructor to assist in our knitting group.

For more information, or to schedule a get acquainted session, contact Tina at 593-9312, or Penny at 594-7416. We can't wait to hear from you.
