InterLibrary Loan Resumes

We are happy to announce the Minerva interlibrary loan and delivery services resumed Monday, July 13. This means our patrons can request materials located at other participating Maine libraries, not just items located in the Wells Public Library.

Please note that in the interest of safety, materials will be quarantined for three days upon arriving at our library, and there may be other delays as libraries resume this service. We thank you for your patience as we bring back this service to help expand your access to library materials!

Feel free to contact us with any questions at libstaff@wellstown.org.
