Opening for Browsing by Appointment on Wed., July 1

On Wednesday, July 1, the Jesup Memorial Library is opening for browsing by appointment in addition to the rotunda item pickup that started in June. Browsing appointments can be made by calling 207-288-4245 or emailing Rotunda pickup will continue for anyone who would rather pick up items that way. Items for pickup can be requested by calling 207-288-4245, by emailing, by filling out the form at or by requesting through the Jesup’s online catalog at

Masks or face coverings must be worn at all times at the library. There will be a limited number of people allowed in the building at one time to promote physical distancing and there will be directional signs to facilitate the flow of people. The library also requests that you keep your visits short.

The children’s room will be open by appointment as well. If you would like to visit the children’s room please specify that when you make your appointment for browsing. Appointments will be for 15 minutes and are for up to four people or one family. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult for adequate supervision and everyone over two years old must wear a mask in the building, per CDC guidelines. There will be no games, toys, puzzles or beanbags available for use in the children’s room. We also ask that all strollers either be left outside or brought into the children’s room. There is no room for them to be placed in the rotunda.

Currently all items checked out before the library’s closure in March have a due date of Friday, July 10. We ask that items be returned when the library is open in the drop box outside the front door or when you come in to pick up new items. All items will be quarantined for 72 hours before they are checked in.

For more information. Contact the library at 207-288-4245.
