Jigsaw Puzzle and Book Giveaway this Saturday!
 At Appleton Library this Saturday, April 18 from 10:00 am – noon, we have used (and clean) jigsaw puzzles and used (and clean) books to give away. We have heard from many community members that they are in need of new-to-them puzzles and books. Please stop by this Saturday and pick one up.
Steps we are taking to ensure everyone’s safety:
  • We are not accepting donated puzzles or books at this time.
  • The jigsaw puzzles and book sale books that we are giving away are from our storage room.
  • The puzzles and books have only been handled by a person wearing gloves.
  • The items will be spread out for ease of viewing in the gazebo.
  • We ask that you use gloves and only touch what you plan to take.
  • We are giving these items away, so please keep them and do not return them.
  • Please wait in your car and only enter the gazebo if it is empty.
  • Please always maintain appropriate physical distance.
  • If you would like to leave a cash donation, we would greatly appreciate it.
A few reminders:
  • We follow Maine State Library guidelines of not lending library materials at this time in an effort to protect the health of our patrons and volunteers.
  • We ask that you hold on to any items you currently have checked out until the library reopens. Any overdue fees will be waived.
  • Inter Library Loan Service is suspended. We will be monitoring the situation and resume the service as soon as possible.
