The Palermo Community Library began Phase 2 of re-opening during the Covid-19 pandemic by opening to the public while continuing Curbside Pickup. The Board of Trustees worked hard behind the scenes to make the library as safe as possible by installing Plexiglas hygiene barriers, providing a deep thorough cleaning of the library’s interior, and creating policies following the guidelines of the Maine State Library and Maine CDC that will protect the health of our staff and patrons.

The library has purchased a Maine State Park Pass to ensure all of our community members have access to the great outdoors during this pandemic. The park pass may be borrowed by library patrons, age 18 and over, to visit state parks. It admits occupants of up to a 17-passenger vehicle to day-use facilities of select Maine State Parks and Historic Sites. The Park Pass may be borrowed for a 3-day checkout limit; it cannot be renewed nor reserved. For more information:

Library hours are Monday 10 a.m. – noon Thursday 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – noon.

The library is located at 2789 Route 3. For more information call 993-6088 or email or visit
