Some Scarborough Public Library groups are returning to the in-person meeting
SCARBOROUGH — Most Scarborough Public Library library groups are now open for in-person meetings again. Masks are still mandatory and residents must wear them throughout the building.
The Morning Book Chat Group, Evening Book Chat Group and Books on Tap have started offering in-person meetings again. There is always the possibility to meet via Zoom for those who wish to participate virtually.
Every Saturday, the Library Knitting Group will meet in person from 10 a.m. to noon. No commitment is necessary; residents can participate when they can. Knitters of all ages are welcome at the meetings. Children must be 7 years and older to participate and must be accompanied by an adult who must participate with the child.
On Friday, March 11 and Friday, April 8, from 2-4 p.m., the Library Sketching Group will meet in person. This is a walk-in event and attendees will be joined by Michael David Brown, a retired illustrator. Basic supplies will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own supplies if they wish.
For those looking to view digital magazines, e-books or videos online, the library is piloting a new library service where patrons can borrow a tablet configured just for them. Customers will be able to access thousands of e-books, videos and digital magazines from the comfort of their own home. No experience necessary. Those interested in signing up for the trial can contact Systems Librarian Tom Corbett at (207) 369-6271.
