McArthur Library Updates

Updated September 30, 2020

McArthur Library remains closed to public entry at this time.

1) cloudLibrary e-books and e-audiobooks

McArthur Library continue to have free e-books and e-audiobooks accessible through cloudLibrary. If you have not used cloudLibrary before, or have not connected in a while, please email reference@mcarthur.lib.me.us or call (207) 284-4181 during weekday hours 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and we can connect you with the right person to help.

2) Returning Library Items

The book drop remains open for returns. While no late fees are being charged, returning your items does help because they will be available sooner to other patrons.

3) McArthur @ Your Mailbox

If you have not heard about this service, all you need is a mailing address (and of course, a library card), and you can receive materials in the safety of your own home!

4) Programming

Check out the September schedule below for digital programming and visit the McArthur Library website for updates. 

Fall Plans

Physical glass barriers finally started to be installed at the Library this month and building prep continues. Staff is still putting many pieces in place, and also watching the York County situation very closely. 

McArthur Library hopes to be in a position to announce a reopening date later this month for limited service, with strict protocols related to cleaning, mask-wearing and the number of people / length of time in the building. 

The very first thing that will be offered is public computer usage (including microfilm, printing/copying/scanning and faxing) by prior appointment, and then if that goes well, staff will look toward book-browsing appointments. Stay tuned for more information.
