The Belfast Free Library is temporarily closed.
While the library is closed, we ask that you hold on to your checked out material instead of returning to the library. Until further notice, the library’s book return slots are closed. All due dates have been extended until May 15. No overdue fines will accrue during this time.
Even though the library is closed, staff will be answering email. If you have questions or need help, please email us. The general information and help email address is email@example.com. Other staff email addresses are on the library’s website: www.belfastlibrary.org.
During this closure, please take advantage of and explore the library’s digital resources, which are available through our website: e-books and e-audiobooks on CloudLibrary and RBDigital; movies on Kanopy; craft projects on Creativebug; self-publishing and a variety of other resources on Biblioboard; and a multitude of information resources through the Digital Maine Library. For more information check out the video below.
Also, please stay tuned for updates as we explore potential delivery of other services during this unique time.
Beginning on September 16, 2019, the Belfast Free Library will take part in a one year pilot program called the Maine Reciprocal Borrowing Program. Basically it means any BFL library card holder may walk into any of the 68 participating libraries and borrow items from that library. Patrons from those libraries will also be able to come in and check out our items. Unfortunately, because of differences in operating systems and other reasons, not all libraries are taking part at this time. For a list of participating libraries click here.
