Welcome to the Library!
The library offers traditional library services & free WiFi to the residents of Jonesport, Beals, and Addison. Community outreach is available for seniors and shut-ins who cannot get to the library.
We also offer numerous events for children, computer literacy classes and trainings, tutoring, employment trainings and certifications, geneology databases, music and art, a local meeting place for area non-profit organizations, and assistance applying for many social services.
The Trustees of Peabody Memorial Library have made the decision to keep the Peabody Memorial Library closed to the public and postpone/cancel all library-sponsored programs until April 30. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate the recommendations and advisories being issued. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons. Our public internet access will still be available 24/7 outside of the library. The library book drop is available for patrons to return any materials, but unfortunately, interlibrary loan services may be interrupted. Our patrons have access to the Maine InfoNet Download library’s collection of downloadable eBooks and audiobooks and can be found here: https://www.maineinfonet.org/download/downloadlibrary/. We will continue to monitor our email, Facebook messages, and telephone messages on a regular basis to accommodate patron’s needs. You can reach out to us at 497-3003, message us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PeabodyMemorialLibrary.Jonesport, or email email@example.com. For those concerned about the repercussions for our dedicated library staff, rest assured that they will continue to be paid for their normal hours and will use this time to catch up on all of the library work that they don’t normally have time to get to given their primary priority of servicing the needs of patrons while the library is open. We hope that you and yours stay safe and sane during these trying times. Sincerely, The Trustees of Peabody Memorial Library
