Fall Hours

The library is open! (Curbside service is available as well).
Tuesday - Saturday.  10:30am - 4:30pm
In Person.  All sanitizing and social distancing precautions and procedures are in place for staff and patrons.  Enter by side door with your mask on, and carefully read notice on door before entering.
Curbside Call 734-2218 or email molson@alpl.lib.me.us with your request -- books, DVDs, CDs, puzzles, or other materials offered by the library.  We will check it out for you and place your labeled bag on the book return box for pickup. 
Returns.  Return your materials to the library's drop box (puzzles on top).  Materials will be 'quarantined' for 72 hours in the library before being made available for the next loan.

Our most fun activity for children is back...two books, two locations!

Through September, read The Very Ugly Bug by Liz Pichon as you walk the trails of the Hinkle Preserve, and Miss Spider's Tea Party by David Kirk at the Narrows' trails.

We've collaborated with the Islesboro Island Trust to create two special adventures.  Follow the signs, read the stories on displays, and enjoy nature!

September 27 - October 3

Stay tuned for details!
