A few bright spots: 
**If you have used Ancestry’s Library Only edition for genealogical research, it is now available for use at home for the duration of Maine’s library closure. Find it on the Digital Maine Library — click on the icon):

**If you have tried using the Cloud Library and found the waiting lists too long, give it another try. Over $40,000.00 of additional content has been purchased in the last 10 days to try to keep up with demand. (More coming soon.) This will help a lot. Again, email me if you need you library card #. 

**Lee Behrendt has put a box of books (donations) free for the taking on the Bellefonda Porch, which as you know is a sort of free pantry, pick-up/drop-off point for the community. The box will be replenished as needed. I’d suggest not returning them until this is all over.  Thank you Lee! 

  Dear Library Friends, 
Effective immediately the Cary Memorial Library will be closed to the public.
We are doing this with a heavy heart, but with Governor’s Mill’s emergency declaration, the closure of our school district, and wishing to do everything we can to help  “flatten the curve”, this is the prudent course. Even though we don’t have crowds of people at any given time, we take these steps out of an abundance of caution. 
It is expected libraries will be given better clarification of safe materials handling procedures in this new coronavirus environment. Once that happens, I hope to set up curbside service, book delivery, porch pick-up or some way to provide you with your books and DVDs. Until further notice, all library programs, meetings and business as usual is suspended. 
Feel free to email me or leave a phone message at the library. (Email is best.) It is fine to leave books in the book drop. Don’t worry too much about due dates. I know we’ll get through this. Everyone stay safe and if I can get some kind of safe book circulation going, I absolutely will do that. 

If anyone needs wi-fi… The library’s is still on and accessible from outside the building, so people can surf from their vehicles and maintain social distancing. No Password required.

The Digital Maine Library provides every resident of Maine with access to online resources that include a collection of full text articles and abstracts from magazines, newspapers, journals and reference. It also provides students, business people, public library patrons, and higher education students and educators the ability to use online learning tools.

Support Maine Public Libraries by donating via your Maine Income Tax form using Schedule CP Charitable Contributions and Purchase of Park Passes. Donating $5 or more is this easy.
