We’re working on getting back to normal. The library’s hours have expanded to Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays!

Thanks to a high vaccination rate in Harpswell and recent CDC and State of Maine guidance, we have expanded our hours. We are now open: Monday 1 – 4 pm, Wednesday 1 – 4 pm and Saturday 9 am – 3 pm.

As a courtesy to staff and other patrons, please continue to mask while inside and use the hand sanitizer provided. A limit of 6 people are allowed in at a time.

We are thankful for your patience during this difficult period. We have shared your concern for the safety of the community and will continue to take all appropriate steps to keep our town healthy.

As a reminder, new books are being added monthly and titles may be preordered at orrsbooks@gmail.com for pickup on Saturday during normal library hours. New additions to the library collection are listed under the “What’s New?” tab.


BOOKS ON THE LAWN returns Wednesday, June 23 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Books are for sale with the cost being whatever you wish to contribute. July dates for Books on the Lawn: July 14 and July 28.

SHARING TABLE has returned for the summer. Wednesdays from noon-5:00 pm. Pick up produce for yourself or others – FREE. This is a program under Harpswell Aging at Home, organized by Merrymeeting Gleaners, and including contributions from a number of local sources.

YES, WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING BOOK DONATIONS! Please drop off during regular business hours or call to make other arrangements.
