After review of Maine State Library Guidelines for reopening, NVPL will be providing curbside services effective July 1, 2020.

For the protection and safety of our librarian and our patrons, we will implement curbside services in the following way.

Patrons can request books, audio books, magazines, dvds via phone 652-2250 or email at (Subject: Curbside Book Request). The contents of our collection are available on-line by accessing - At sign in box enter “New Vineyard Public Library”, no password is required.

Patrons should communicate what they are requesting AND how to reach them to set up a pick up time.

Our librarian will locate requested items if available, create a bag containing the items THAT WILL BE QUARANTINED FOR A MINIMUM OF 72 HOURS.

Patron will be notified when the bag is available. The bag with the patron’s name attached will be left in the PICKUP bin outside of the door of the NVPL Community Room. Patron will pick up their bag. There will be no entry to the NVPL Community Room or Library.

Return of books/items (preferably in a bag to assist with quarantine) are to be left in the RETURN bin at the NVPL community room door. Please DO NOT use the Drop Box.

Books/items returned WILL BE QUARANTINED AS PER MAINE STATE GUIDELINES FOR A MINIMUM OF 72 HOURS, before being returned to the library collection.

We will continue to monitor Federal and State Guidelines as well as local rural small libraries implementations and will adjust our services offerings where and if appropriate. The protection and safety of our librarian and patrons remains foremost in our decisions.
