Books and Resources explore the world of books
Lincolnville Community Library Catalog
The Lincolnville Community Library has a growing collection of fiction and nonfiction titles for adults and children. It includes everything from best-selling novels to memoirs, cookbooks, and a special section on local history. The library also has a particularly strong selection of books related to self-sufficiency and the traditional arts. View the Library Catalog
Card-holding patrons may request books through interlibrary loan. These books are ordered through the Bangor Public Library, which mails them to Lincolnville. It usually takes about a week to receive a book, though it can take longer for extremely popular ones. Patrons may borrow these books for three weeks.
Card-holding patrons may download e-books and audio books from the Maine InfoNet Download Library, which offers a growing collection of fiction and nonfiction titles. Books may usually be borrowed for three weeks, just as in a traditional library. To log in, enter the barcode on the back of your library card (see the librarian if you still need a barcode).

Marvel, Maine's Virtual Library
Thousands of magazines, newspapers, reference books and other resources such as ancestrylibrary.com are available at the library free of charge through the online collections of Marvel.
MaineCat Statewide Catalog
The MaineCat Statewide Catalog combines and links nearly 100 library collections contained in ten large online library systems. A single search scans millions of unique titles. While the Lincolnville Community Library is not a member of MaineCat, this is a great research tool. See “Interlibrary Loan” above to learn how to borrow books not available at the Lincolnville Community Library.
Computers and Internet Access
The library offers laptop computers for patrons and guests to use within the building. The laptops must be checked out at the circulation desk. Free high-speed wireless Internet access is available for those who bring their own computers or other devices to the library.
Home Delivery Service
The library offers free delivery and pickup of books and other materials to local residents who are homebound and unable to visit in person. Volunteers from the Friends of the Library Committee provide this service. To learn more, please contact the library at 706-3896 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prints and Copies
Staff will make copies and print documents for patrons and guests for a fee of 25 cents per page.
Lincolnville Historical Society
The library grew out of a project of the Lincolnville Historical Society and the two organizations continue to collaborate on programs. An area in the library is set aside for historical society exhibits and books. The society also maintains displays of historical objects in the nearby Jackie Watts Open Air Museum, which is open in the summer months.
