Curbside Pickup

Our curbside pickup service will provide a safe, touch-free way for you to access books, DVDs, and gear during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will begin on August 31st, 2020, and continue indefinitely. Read a letter from our director about these changes and our timeline for reopening.

Below is an overview of how curbside pickup works, or you can watch our video tutorial.

How it works:

  1. Request your books, DVDs, or gear ahead of time online or over the phone (207-723-7020). Learn how to request items here.
  2. We’ll call you to let you know when they’re ready for pick-up. 
  3. Pick them up within 1 week at our curbside window at 5 Maine Avenue. 
    • When you’re here, call us (207-723-7020) or use our doorbell, and we’ll pass you your items.

  • Mondays, 10am-5pm
  • Tuesdays, 1pm-5pm
  • Wednesdays, 10am-5pm
  • Thursdays, 10am-5pm

Returning items:

  • Return books and DVDs using our new book drop on the south side of the 5 Maine Avenue building.

  • Email your documents to Include number of copies, whether you’d like color or black and white, and whether you’d like single-sided or double-sided.
  • If you can’t email your documents, call us at 207-723-7020, and we can arrange to collect hard copies from you through the curbside slot.
