JUNE 22, 2020


Porch Pick-Up will continue to be an option.  Simply email (preferred) or leave a phone message for the librarian. We’ll pack up your order and alert you when it’s ready. 
Safety Measures:  Masks and hand sanitizer will continue to be the order of the day. All returned library materials continue to be quarantined for 72 hours. I am still asking that library visits be kept brief, in order to minimize length of exposure to library staff and patrons alike. An abundance of caution but that’s what we’re doing. 
Computers and WiFi: Library WiFi is available 24/7. If you need a library computer for more than 15 min. that we suggest for visits, please speak to the librarian and we will make a plan.
Interlibrary Loan Services: Current word is that statewide service may be able to resume in later July. Please save your requests.

A Seal’s Journey

Join Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) as they take you through a seal’s
journey from stranding to release, and all of the obstacles in between.

of the water and why you might see a baby on its own, and then dive into
when and why seals need our help. You will learn what MMoME is, what they
do,the animals they care for, and how you can help.

March Wayne Library Board Meeting

Our next Wayne Library Board meeting is tonight. Our meetings are open to all members, and would like to hear from you.

SATURDAY, August 1, 2020 


We are all excited to offer our popular lobster roll lunch again this year, and it will be pick-up and go.

Your lunch box will include the made-to-order fresh clear lobster mixed with a hint of mayo, stuffed in a toasted bun with a bit of lettuce crunch, along with homemade blueberry cake, chips and pickles.  Chicken salad roll also offered, with the same fixings.  Or ask us to ‘hold the roll’.  Drink options will be available at pick-up. 

We will prepare this popular meal safely, in the church kitchen, and pick-up times will be spaced, to avoid crowding.  Hope to see you then, in the church parking lot where you will be greeted at the pick up tables.

We ask you to PRE-ORDER, AND PRE-PAY.  Very limited availability without pre-ordering.  If you have questions, please call Holly Stevenson, 685-9005 or Kim King, 685-4506.

TO ORDER: PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL HOLLY:  685-9005 OR HOLLYSTV@HOTMAIL.COM, no later than 7/30.  Please send checks, made out to FOL (Friends of the Library at the Cary Library) to: Cary Memorial Library, POB 127, Wayne Me  04284.  When I receive your order, I’ll assign a pick up time as I confirm your order with you.  LOBSTER ROLL LUNCH $20 and CHICKEN ROLL LUNCH $10

While we are sad not to be able to gather together this year for the lobster roll lunch, and there will not be a bake sale, we are happy it will feel like summer! We greatly appreciate your support which helps the Friends of the Library fund library projects such as the purchase of books, movies, audio books, and funding of summer intern & summer programs.
