Winslow Library Activities

Starting Monday, May 18th the Winslow Public Library will resume distance circulation with curbside pick-up of materials.

Library staff will be working from the building and available via phone (207-872-1978) or email (winslowlibrarycirculation@winslow-me.gov)

  • Patrons can call or email us and we will check-out available items. We will then contact you to come pic-up the items by ringing the library doorbell or calling us when you are in the parking lot.
  • Patrons can them step back away from the library door while we place the materials on top of the book-drop.
  • Patrons may return items to the library via the book-drop at any time.

Currently we are not in a position to reopen the building, but are monitoring the situation and are preparing the library for that happy day.
