Lubec Memorial Library is taking further steps toward safely reopening to the public. In addition to the continuing curbside pickup of reserved materials the library will begin opening to the public, by appointment. Access by appointment will begin on Monday, June 29 during the following hours: Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 to 2; Wednesday, 4 to 6. Those entering the building will be asked to follow guidelines developed by the Maine State Library which are being observed by public libraries throughout Maine. These measures are designed to protect the public and library staff during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

To make an appointment please call the library, 733-2491. The number of patrons in the library will be limited to five people at a time, in addition to staff. Time spent in the library will be limited to 15 minutes. Masks must be worn for the safety of everyone. An exception is made for children under four years of age. Hand sanitizer is available for all entering the building. Patrons are asked to observe the six-foot social distancing protocol. During this stage of reopening, public computers will not be available.

We appreciate the public’s continued patience and support during this unprecedented health emergency. We anticipate that, working together, our library will once again be the safe, open, accessible space we have come to expect.

The Lubec Memorial Library building remains closed to the public. Lobby, restrooms, computers, meeting room and other spaces are not accessible at this time.

Please follow these steps to borrow and pick up materials at the library:

Step 1: Place your items on hold.

  • Use our website to search the catalog for items currently available and place a hold on the items you want. You may also call in or email your requests.
  • You will be notified via email or phone when your item is ready.
  • You may also call or email a librarian for recommendations or to request books on a certain subject during our limited hours.

Step 2: Wait for notification, then let us know when you plan to pick up.

  • After you receive notification call the library when you are ready to pick up your holds. Call ahead with an estimated time of arrival so staff can have your items ready during curbside pick-up hours. Please be prompt. Once you reach the designated pick up area at the back of the building please call the library so that a librarian can bring you your materials.
  • Staff will pull your items, check them out, place them in a bag and bring them to your car.
  • You may pick-up items checked out on multiple cards.

Step 3: Pick up your items.

  • The only pick-up area is the driveway behind the library, near the back door.
  • Outdoor signage will guide you to the pick-up area.
  • Once notified, a librarian will deliver your items to you through the window of your vehicle.
  • Enjoy your books!

Please know that this is new territory for all of us and that we are doing our best to restore our valued library service as safely and promptly as we can. We ask for your continued support and patience and trust that together we can again provide the library service that we all expect and deserve. We look forward to seeing all of you again soon.

This is Lubec and we will weather this storm.
