Notice from the State Interlibrary Loan Delivery System
The state interlibrary delivery system is not able to manage the large quantity of materials moving through the system. In response, the State Library Board has decided to create new limitation guidelines on interlibrary loans as follows:
- Patrons will be limited to 5 simultaneous holds on materials not owned by their library
- New materials will not be available for interlibrary loan for 6 months.
Summer Reading at the Library
This summer the Westbrook Public Library has some great programs and activities planned! We have added an online book log program this summer to help log your books for the Governor’s summer reading challenge. Make sure to check out the Summer Reading page for more information. In addition, we have programs designed for children and teens from 0 to 18! For more information on those, check out the Children’s page and the Teen page.
