On July 6, Witherle Memorial Library will reopen with limited public access.
Patrons will be permitted to enter the library and request books at the library desk. Those patrons who wish to browse the permanent adult collection of fiction, nonfiction, books on CD and DVDs may do so by appointment, one patron or family at a time. Masks are required and patrons are asked to practice social distancing when in the building. The library will continue to offer no-touch pick-up, curbside pick-up and home delivery service. To order books and other materials, or set up an appointment to browse, please go contact the library during regular business hours.
The Children’s Room remains closed for public access for the time being. However, patrons may request an unlimited number of books, DVDs, and magazines, by title, genre, and age. Please contact Youth Services librarian Irene Hall for assistance.
Interlibrary loan remains unavailable, however the library hopes to see this valuable service return later this summer.
The library staff extends its gratitude to the Castine community for its support and flexibility during the last three months, and is happy to see the return of more services as the library safely reopens.
