FRIENDS Poetry Reading
Saturday, April 29th @3:00 PM
Come and celebrate National Poetry Month at the ALP Library as island poets and poetry lovers read and recite their favorite poems and share how poetry is the core of artistic expression. All are welcome!
The Readblog is back up and running!
Tune in to the Library's Youtube channel every week on Saturday for a small snippet of a new book read by Richard Coombs. Get a sample of a book you might just be interested in!
Fiction and nonfiction for young and old will be covered. You can view it all over here.

Don't See What You Want in the Library?
Here's How to Get It!
In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.
Request for Purchase
We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think a book, DVD, magazine, newspaper, game, or database should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out. You can make requests by clicking here.
Hundreds of e-books and audio books are available on Cloud Library through our website. Just go to alplibrary.org, click on “On-line Resources,” and scroll down to Cloud Library. Once you enter your library card number and download the appropriate app, you can access fiction, non-fiction, best sellers, classics, young adult, and childrens’ books and enjoy these resources on your personal media devices.
Consider making a direct donation to the Friends of the Library by sending a check made out to Friends of the Alice L. Pendleton Library to P.O. Box 87, Islesboro, ME 04848. Thank you!
