March newsletter from the Library - expanded hours - Tuesday 10am to 3pm

  As we enter March and the anniversary of COVID-19 uprooting our usual routines around the library, we want to take a few moments and   share some of the joys we’ve experienced while serving you, our patrons and community. Our Tool Library facilitated a bathroom and closet remodel, and allowed several homes to have wood split for the winter. Craft kits kept a group of patrons in a celebratory mood on New Year’s Eve, and some St. George students masked in style. We’ve provided momentary human and familiar contact to many patrons during curbside pick ups. Documents were printed, jobs were applied for, and vaccines signed up for because of our WiFi, computers, and printers. We are honored to be your library.

From the St George Animal Control Officer

Link to Facebook post (you don't need an account.)  Hello St George residents, My name is Ralph Demmons ( pictured with my grandson Maverick). I am the Animal Control Officer for St. George and So.

  Update from the Broadband Committee The Connect St. George Committee is asking the St. George community to participate in  Maine Broadband Coalition's Speed Tes t .  The goal of the “Get Up To Speed” initiative is to gather data from across the state to generate the most comprehensive map of both the presence and quality of internet in Maine to date.  How does this help the Connect St. George initiative? The new speed testing initiative is the crucial next step in ensuring the delivery of broadband throughout the state and will help local, regional, and state leaders develop projects and steer investments to the places that need it most.  The test takes less than 1 minute (depending on your internet) and will help us move our project forward.
