    The following is from Belfast Free Library:

    Starting Monday, March 16, the Belfast Free Library will be suspending all programs, events, and uses of the meeting rooms through the end of March due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. Please check back with us later about events scheduled for April since the situation is changing rapidly.

    The library, however, WILL STILL BE OPEN for its usual hours.

    Like you, we are paying close attention to recent developments with COVID-19 in our country and in Maine. We wish to do our best to protect the health of library users and staff while still providing essential library service to our community.

    We have intensified best sanitation practices by wiping down counters, keyboards, and so forth, multiple times a day.  We also have extra hand sanitizers around the library to help keep all of us safe.

    Plans for library services could change as advice from the Governor and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention change.  Please check this website or feel free to give us a call to see if the situation has changed.

    Finally, we want to remind you that we offer many services on-line, such as: CloudLibrary for e-books and e-audiobooks, Kanopy for movies and TV shows, and our informational databases at the Digital Maine Library.

    Suspension of programs will begin on MONDAY, March 16. Programs this weekend (March 14 and 15) are not affected and will be held as scheduled.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding while we learn, as a community, how to contain and mitigate this virus.
