Temporary Suspension of In-Person Services

Image may contain: text that says 'IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!'
Due to the increase in Covid-19 cases, Maxfield Public Library has decided to temporarily suspend in-person services when we reopen after the Thanksgiving holiday on Tuesday, December 1st. We anticipate this suspension to last until approximately mid-January. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. This decision was made with the safety and health of our staff and community in mind. Staff will be available by phone or email during our regular operating hours throughout the holidays and into the New Year. During this temporary change in services, our online and curbside services (including book and DVD requests and order pick-ups) will continue. Our book drop will also remain open for your convenience.

We will continue with in-person browsing and in-person technical services (including public computer access, printing, copying, scanning, and faxing) until the Library closes Wednesday, November 25, at 5pm. To accommodate families and our younger patrons, we have opened the Children’s Library for appointment-based browsing until 2pm on Wednesday.

If you would like to learn how to navigate our online catalog, please call us at 798-5153 and a staff member will be happy to show you how to browse our virtual shelves, see new materials, renew borrowed materials, and place items on hold. As always, you may call the Library or email Library Director Dena Norman at maxlib@comcast.net with any questions. Updates and changes to our services will be announced on our Facebook page, the Town of Loudon’s website at www.loudonnh.org, and the Library’s website at www.maxfieldlibrary.com.
