The schedule that we began in March continues unchanged for another month. We will have some changes in June as we prepare for our summer programs and schedule school visits. We’ll update you on those changes as soon as they are finalized! Click here for the current schedule.
We are pleased to announce that the new entrance to our temporary home is now open, making the library ADA accessible once again. Users enter at ground level, and have access to the up and down lifts–as well as the stairs–to enter the service areas of the library. Children’s services, young adult materials, and hold pick-ups are upstairs, adult services (including returns and check-outs) can be found downstairs in what was once our Community Room. We are open our regular hours, so stop by and see us!
As of Friday, January 30, the LibraryAnywhere app that mobile users used to use to access the library’s Minerva catalog is no longer functional–please delete the app from your mobile devices. Instead, simply access our catalog from your mobile device, and the new mobile version of the site will launch. Please bookmark the site or add it to your home screen for easy access. The new mobile version of the catalog should be easier and more straightforward to use. Please let us know if you encounter any problems.
We have had to put a significant portion of our collection into storage during our year-long renovation. Although Interlibrary Loan is still available for unavailable items, two area libraries have graciously offered to help our users during the construction period. During the year of 2015, you may use your Thomas Memorial Library card at South Portland Public Library and Scarborough Public Library without having to pay a non-resident fee! We are very grateful to our good neighbors for their help while our new library is under construction! Please visit the South Portland and Scarborough library websites for a listing of hours and services.
We are open in our temporary space and have resumed our regular schedule of hours. While our new front entrance is being constructed, library users will have to enter the library through the front porch of the children’s library. We regret that this entrance does not meet ADA accessibility standards. This entrance will only be used temporarily. If you find that you cannot manage the stairs, please contact us and we will arrange to deliver needed items to you. You can reach us by phone at 799-1720, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your patience as we settle into our altered space.
We’re trying out a new schedule of regular weekly story times for the month of February in our new, temporary programming space. Click here for details!
