Library Closing

CMP is coming to do their work at the library today, Tuesday July 9 which unfortunately means that we are closed.  This is a really good thing though, because it will allow us to finally get our phone and internet connections working as well!

The new children's room


Visitors Sarah Rose Rotman-Moore and Tom Moore enjoy some time in the children's room.

Library is open Monday, July 8th from 3:00 to 6:00pm

Thank you for your patience and ongoing understanding with the Library's variable days of service. JML will be open on Saturday, July 6th from 9am to noon, and Monday, July 8th from 3pm to 6pm. Central Maine Power is scheduled to do work on the site on 7/9 and if that's the case the library will have to be closed on Tuesday, July 9th.

Art Auction and Raffle is open

Donated art from local artists is hanging in the library's community room. Stop by the front desk for your bid number. There are also a number of pieces of art in the raffle.

Roxana Robinson - Tuesday, July 16th at 5:30pm at the Ocean View Grange

The critically acclaimed author Roxana Robinson was chosen to launch the summer Literary Series at the Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor in 2008. She returns on Tuesday, July 16, to the Ocean View Grange at 5:30 to present her latest novel Sparta, published by Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, in June 2013.

Closure Notes

A few notes about our closing:

  • Please, if possible, hold onto your books until June 29, when we reopen. This will make the process much easier for us.  If you have a special circumstance (such as moving), please let us know and we will try to work something out.
  • Wireless internet access outside the red building will last until June 26.  At this point, the internet connection will be switched over to the new building.  Chances are, no wireless internet connection will be available that day at either location.
  • Our phone service is being switched over on June 19 from the old building to the new building! Please try to use email or Facebook as your first attempt to contact us for the rest of the week while we try to get everything lined up.

Thank you so much for your understanding while we move!  We are so excited to reopen in our new location.
