With all of the library staff to be vaccinated by mid May, the Curtis Library Board of Directors voted at their April meeting to reinstate indoor service hours beginning Monday, May 17. Curbside service will continue in the mornings.
Our new hours will be:
Monday through Friday 9:30 am to Noon – Curbside Service Only
Monday through Friday Noon to 6:00 pm – Indoor Service Only
Saturday 9:30 am to 1:00 pm – Indoor Service Only
Sundays – Closed through Labor Day
Library Director Elisabeth Doucett shares, “The staff are so excited to welcome patrons back inside the library. We’ve done many improvements to make borrowing books and materials easier, as well as painted walls, updated spaces and enhanced movement throughout the library.”
Patrons will need a mask before entering (we can supply if needed) and will be reminded to limit their visits to under an hour if possible. During indoor service hours, patrons can enter the library through the Middle Street, St. Paul’s or the Reading Garden entrances. Curbside Pick-Up will still take place at the Middle Street entrance. Patrons will be able to use library computers for one hour, as well as printers and copiers.
Additional updates will be happening in the months ahead, including the Town of Brunswick’s replacement of the 23 year old carpet in the Children’s Library and throughout the first floor (walked on by over 6 million pairs of feet during that time!), new furniture in the 1904 Building underwritten by donor and foundation support, new and upgraded WiFi access points throughout the building, and more.
We Can’t Wait to Welcome You Back Inside!!
