Objects lent out by the Library through its Library of Things program must be checked out from and returned to Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, ME. A valid Curtis Memorial Library card in good standing is required to borrow a Thing. Borrowers of specialty items must be at least 18 years old. At this time only Curtis Memorial Library patrons can reserve a Thing.

Loan Periods and Fines 

In most cases, a Thing may be borrowed for 3 week intervals and renewed up to 2 times unless another borrower is waiting. Chromebook/WiFi Hotspot kits may be borrowed for 7 days and renewed up to 2 times unless another borrower is waiting.

Proper Use and Liability

Use care when handling the Thing. The borrower is solely responsible for the Thing and will be billed for reasonable repair or replacement costs associated with damage or loss of Things and/or peripherals due to neglect or abuse. The Library has sole discretion in making these decisions.

Curtis Memorial Library is not responsible for any injury, loss, or damage that may occur from use of a Thing.
