Have you seen this sight on the first floor of our Main Library recently? Don’t panic – it’s the future home of our City of Readers Store!

Your purchases at the store support critical PPL programs like Summer Reading. We’re looking forward to making it easier for you to shop for high-quality used books and PPL swag – all while supporting the Library.

The current store is closed until Friday, Nov. 25 while we make the move. More info on the way, but we can’t wait to see you at the reopening!

Interested in becoming a store volunteer? Find out what’s involved, and fill out an application!

 

 

 


Maine Music

If you have been to the Main Library lately, you may have noticed a few changes in where items are located. One of the bigger changes has been the bringing down of the CD collection to the lower level. Along with moving things around, we have separated out MAINE MUSIC! We are celebrating the talented musicians who live and work in our great state!

Now if you search in our online catalog for “local music,” you will find a listing of our holdings. We are continuing to update our collection with new local artists, so keep checking back for new titles!

In the mean time, stop by the lower level and check out a few local artists like the great Samuel James, fan favorite Don Campbell, and Portland Supergroup Covered in Bees!

Look for the CDs with the little Maine flag sticker and discover something new, something local!
