Good News From the Library
The Long Island Library will reopen on Saturday, September 12th, for patron visits. We will be open on Saturdays, from 9:30 – 11:30. The Library will be following all guidelines put forth by the Maine CDC. Patrons will be required to wear masks, social distance, and use hand sanitizer provided by the Library. There will be no restroom available and for the time being the Tech room with computers and printers will be off limits to patrons. On duty staff will have information on the proper handling of books and other materials to ensure that we are following the most recent guidelines for quarantining library materials to prevent the spread of Covid 19.
We will also be continuing our curbside service for those who would prefer contactless pick up of books or other library materials. Library patrons can go to the Library catalog on the Library website, (library.long-island.lib.me.us ) or access the website through the Town of Long Island site to find out what books we have and if they are available.
There will be a Google form on the site to fill out with the material you are requesting. You can access the form directly using the link below.
You may also call the Library (207-766-2530) on Saturday mornings between 9:00 and 11:00 to request books. Library staff will have your orders ready for pick up from 10:00 to 11:30 AM. All material leaving the Library will have been quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours. We are requesting that patrons leave all returning books and DVDs in the book drop. Please return books as soon as possible as they will need to be in quarantine for 72 hours before they can be re-shelved and available for other patrons.
