Guidelines to Using the Library During the COVID-19 Pandemic

August 11, 2021 Update: Unfortunately, the Maine CDC has announced that Knox County is at “substantial” levels of community transmission of COVID-19, which means face masks are again required inside the library for everyone over the age of 3, regardless of vaccination status. 

We know it’s not fun, especially in hot and humid weather, and we thank everyone for their cooperation and help in keeping the library safe for everyone. We have face masks available for anyone who has forgotten theirs (including kid-sized masks in fun colors for our younger patrons!), and as always, curbside pickup is available if you are unable to wear a mask.

We know the case numbers can change daily, but it’s pretty confusing to go back and forth, so the masking requirement will remain until we are back to “low” levels of community transmission for at least two weeks. 

As of May 24, 2021 patron limits and time limits have been lifted, and quarantining of library materials is no longer required. 

Masks are not required at outdoor library events.

Curbside pickup will continue to be available during the library’s open hours and by appointment Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 11 AM. On July 1, we returned to our pre-pandemic hours. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Head Librarian, Caroline Ward-Nesbit, at
