GREENE — Morse Library has resumed its full schedule of Tuesday to Saturday hours.
“After six weeks of a limited re-opening, we found our patrons very cooperative with following CDC guidelines for masks and social distancing,: said Librarian Kelli Burnham. “Now that more people are comfortable coming back into the building, rather than using curbside pick-up, it made sense for us to return to our regular schedule.”
The library is celebrating Maine’s bicentennial with several initiatives, including a recent take-and-make project for kids. Each child who completed their version of a Maine flag received a certificate for a free ice cream at the Main Street Dairy Treat in Lewiston, a supporter of the library’s summer reading program.
Families should keep an eye out for the new blue canopy outside the library to find more projects. The sun canopy was bought with money from the Friends of the Library and will be used to give the library some added flexibility while COVID-19 restrictions remain in
