SCARBOROUGH —  Most library groups at Scarborough Public library are now back open to in-person meetings. Masks are still required, and residents must wear them throughout the building. 

The Morning Book Discussion Group, Evening Book discussion Group and Books on Tap have started to offer in-person meetings again. There is still the option to meet through Zoom for those who would like to participate virtually. 

Every Saturday the Library Knitting Group will meet in person from 10 a.m. to noon. No commitment is necessary; residents can participate when they can. Knitters of all ages are welcome at the meetings. Children must be age 7 and up to participate and must be accompanied by an adult who must participate along with the child.  

On Friday, March 11, and Friday, April 8, from 2 to 4 p.m., the Library Sketching Group will meet in-person. This is a drop-in event and participants will be joined by Michael David Brown, a retired illustrator. Basic supplies will be provided but participants are welcome to bring their own supplies if they desire.  

For those looking to check out digital magazines, eBooks or online videos, the library is piloting a new library service where patrons can borrow a tablet that comes configured just for them. Patrons will be able to access thousands of eBooks, videos, and digital magazines all from the comfort of their home. No experience necessary. Those looking to register for the trial can reach out to Tom Corbett, systems librarian at (207) 369-6271.
