Porter Memorial Library

OPEN — Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm / Saturday 10am – 1pm

Following the pandemic, Porter Memorial Library will reopen some services to the public, starting Tuesday, June 2.

Curbside Pickup Service: Starting June 2, Porter Memorial Library members can ask for library materials ahead of time and pick up their curbside order when it’s ready.

Membership and Fees Waived: If you’re not a library member, we will be happy to sign you up for membership right on the spot. All membership fees and overdue fines will be waived during Porter Memorial Library’s transition to reopening.

Contact for Curbside Service: To reach us for curbside pickup, call 207-255-3933, email librarian@porter.lib.me.us, or place a reserve online at https://porter.biblionix.com. Any book, movie, audiobook, or magazine that’s available in our circulating collection can be accessed with curbside pickup. (Interlibrary Loan, a popular service from Maine State Library, is not expected until later in the summer.)

Pickup Process: We’ll contact you when your curbside order is ready. Orders will be bagged, labeled, and placed on the library front porch during regular library hours: Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Socially Safe Booksale: Starting June 8, Porter Memorial Library’s Socially-Safe Pop-Up Used Book Sale will sprout each morning on the library’s front lawn. The pop-up book sale, brought to you by library volunteer Mike Zimmermann, will be self-serve and spaced for safety. Books will be sanitized before being placed on sale tables each day.

Free Library Box: A Free Library Box is located outside of the library near the parking lot. Please come pick up a free family calendar and take a free book. Please wash your hands before and after handling the box and use at your own risk.
