No Lobby Pick-Up for Now, Sorry
In compliance with Governor Sununu's Stay-at-Home order and in consultation with our library trustees and Madbury's health officer and on the advice of the state library associations, we are discontinuing the lobby pick-up announced last week. We would love to provide you with books and other materials for your stay-at-home-time but we don't want to create a potentially unsafe situation for patrons or staff. 

 
The Library Is Closed until Further Notice
In consultation with state and local librarians as well as Madbury's health officer, we have decided to close effective Tuesday, March 17. We regret having to make this decision but feel it is necessary to protect the health and safety of our staff, visitors, and community. 

What do you do with items checked out from the library? Enjoy them a little longer and return them to us in person when we reopen, which we hope will be soon. You could also return them to our building's lobby Wednesdays between 12-5.
 
We will continue to monitor email and phone calls. If you have any questions, please call 743-1400 or email library@madburylibrary.org or directormpl@comcast.net.

Some Oyster River Community Read Programs Will Be Available Online in April
