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 email@example.com. Thank you for your patience as we settle into our altered space.
