Volunteers needed
Due to Covid-19 health concerns Stockton Springs Community Library has experienced a decline in the number of volunteers. To maintain 501(c)3 status, and with it the ability to secure much needed grants, SSCL needs to stay open 18 hours a week. Two volunteers work each shift. You can help by working as little as one shift a month (shifts are 2 to 3 hours depending on the day). Complete training is provided. So are masks and gloves. So here’s your chance to live your secret dream of being a librarian! Help in the gardens is also welcome.

Digital Maine Library is available to every resident of Maine.

SSCL offers wi-fi internet service to the public from both inside and outside the building. Access with your wi-fi enabled device from the safety of your vehicle, the front porch, or the library gazebo where a charger station is also available. Please maintain 6 foot physical distance guidelines, wear a mask when appropriate, and wipe surfaces down before and after you touch them.

Additional information about SSCL monthly programs, special events, and services is available on this website, on the Facebook page, and by contacting the library at 207-567-4147.
