New Calais Free Library Hours

The staff at the Calais Free Library wants to let all our patrons know that the library will have new days with new hours of operation.  Starting the first full week of February, the library will be closed Sunday and Monday.  The library will then be open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm.  Tuesday, February 3, 2014 will be our first day of our new schedule.  Stop in and see us.  

The Used Book Sale is still going on in the Art Gallery.  We have a nice selection from many genres.  The sale will be ongoing through the month of January.  

Miss Joyce, our new Youth Services librarian, is having lots of fun meeting old friends and new ones in the Children’s section of the library.  She is excited about our new Saturday hours and looks forward to meeting young patrons and their caregivers.  Let her know when your birthday is so you can be in the birthday club.  

Don’t worry about Wiggles and Giggles: we will still have it on Friday mornings.  Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers are all welcome to attend a special story time filled with songs, finger plays, stories, and a craft.  This is a nice chance for little ones and caregivers to meet new people and get out and to play.  Wiggles and Giggles start each Friday at 10:30 am.

Unfortunately our Monday Morning Knitters will have to undergo a name change. We will continue to meet twice a month throughout the cold winter months.  The knitters decided Wednesdays will work out nicely.  Wednesday Morning Knitters will be meeting on February 12 and February 26 from 10 am to 11: 30 am.

Support Maine Public Libraries by donating via your Maine Income Tax form using Schedule CP Charitable Contributions and Purchase of Park Passes. Donating $5.00 or more is this easy.  Go to your Maine Income Tax Form- Form 1040ME.  Locate Schedule CP.  Look for Maine Public Library Fund in section A.  Choose to donate $5.00, $10.00, $25.00 or more.  Maine taxpayers using the I-File system will also see the Maine Public Library fund on the Schedule CP voluntary contributions page.  Last year’s contributions helped support van delivery which brings us our interlibrary loan items and bought more downloadable audio and eBooks available through the Overdrive system.  Help keep Maine libraries strong.
