ALERT : As of July 1, 2024, limited Inter Library Loan service is now available

Pending contract negotiation and return of the van delivery system, ILL service was temporarily suspended for all Minerva libraries, as well as MaineCat, MILS, and URSUS systems in early June. More information on van delivery can be found here: Frequently Asked Questions.

Until the van delivery service resumes, a small group of Minerva libraries, known as Mini-ME, will be providing limited ILL requesting/delivery. You can always request (hold) items from Falmouth Memorial Library with your Falmouth card, and now you may also place holds and request items from Gray Public Library, Walker Memorial Library (Westbrook), Windham Public Library, Baxter Memorial Library (Gorham), McArthur Library (Biddeford), Scarborough Public Library, Thomas Memorial Library (Cape Elizabeth), and South Portland Public Library. You don’t need to do anything different in the catalog, search for materials as you normally would, and make your request, and if one of these 9 libraries have the item, the request will be successful and your hold will be placed. If none of us have the item you’re looking for, the request will be denied. Please call the Library for assistance in obtaining out-of-state items, per usual. Your holds may take a little longer to arrive via Mini-ME, as we won’t all be making daily direct trips, and some of the items will have layovers in other libraries on their way here, but we hope to fill the gap in ILL delivery as best we can until van delivery returns. Thank you in advance for your patience as we all navigate this delivery disruption.

Book Donations

The library is currently accepting book donations. Please ensure that all book donations are in excellent condition and were published in the last 5 years.

We are also looking for the following:

  • Major series authors like Louise Penny, David Baldacci, James Patterson, etc.
  • Continually popular older books (remember, excellent condition only!)
  • Books written by Maine authors
  • Children’s series books and classics

Please do not bring us old books, old maps, dictionaries, textbooks, cookbooks or craft books. We do not have the ability to store a large number of items.

Your donations of new, good condition books might replace old, worn copies in our collection; or become new additions to our catalog; or be sold in our new bookstore. All of these benefit our library, so we greatly appreciate your donations!

Please bring donations to the circulation desk and a member of our staff can help you with your donation.
