We miss you! The library will remain closed through the end of April, in alignment with the updated mandate issued by Gov. Janet Mills. We may be distancing, but we are striving to remain social! In the newsletter below, you can read about all the efforts we are making to help you stay connected to the resources and services you value and rely on.
These new challenges have also presented new opportunities for learning, sharing, and connecting. Let’s embrace this unity, even if we cannot embrace one another. Keep reaching out to us, and we will keep working to be a trusted heart of the community.
Be safe. Be well. We cannot wait to welcome you back soon!

Our monthly book groups are a fun way to talk about books we love, discover new authors, and share ideas. Our Maine Student Book Award Club is for students in grades 4-8. We have a list at the library, or you can check out the list at http://msba.umeedu.maine.edu/ for the latest books for suggestion. Our monthly meetings usually include a potluck and a lot of laughs.
Our YA Book-Lovers Club meets on a Tuesday once a month from 4 to 5. You don’t have to be a teen to like YA books, and we encourage anyone to attend. Our group choice changes monthly, so be sure to check out our events calendar or stop by the library to request the latest pick!
We are seeking your help to Stock the Stacks! The Stock the Stacks fund is an essential part of our operating budget, and it goes directly into purchasing new books. We always strive to keep the library shelves current and vibrant — and we can’t do it without you! Visit https://www.librarycamden.org/stockthestacks to donate – and thank you!
