Temporary Library Closure Because of COVID-19 Virus

Following the lead of RSU 24’s decision to close schools for a three-week period, the Winter Harbor Public Library will also be closed during this time: March 16 through April 3.

We will provide further information on the services available through the library as information becomes available. If you have books or DVDs outstanding, you may drop them off at our drop box outside the library.

If you wish to access our online catalogue, go to the catalog tab on the menu at the top of this page. If you find a book, audiobook, or DVD you wish to check out, contact the library and we may be able to arrange a pick-up or drop-off.

If you wish to download an e-book or an audiobook, tap on the green MaineInfonet button below. If you wish to access a database, including periodicals, tap on the DigitalMaineLibrary button below.

We are sorry for having to take this measure, but hope it will help keep people safer and healthier until more is known.
