Maine InfoNet

Falmouth Memorial Library, along with all libraries in the State of Maine, is fortunate to be part of Maine InfoNet, a collaborative of academic, public, school, and special libraries that provides leadership in resource sharing, promotes cost effective solutions for quality library information services, and supports the cultural, educations, and economic development of Maine. Maine InfoNet provides access to downloadable audio and e-books through OverDrive.
