Homebound Delivery

The Friends of the Library are now offering book and book on tape delivery to those homebound. Any New Gloucester resident that is homebound qualifies for this program. You do not need to be permanently homebound to use this service. If you are home after a surgery or other illness a temporary delivery service can be arranged.

To sign up for this service all you have to do is call the library. After that, one of the Friends will call you to see exactly where you live and what kind of books you like to read. Then just sit back, and wait for the books to be delivered to your door.

For more information, or to sign up, call the library at 926-4840, or e-mail

A Message from the Friends

We're the Friends of the New Gloucester Library. Every October and February we hold a Book and Bake Sale. Money from these sales has purchased children's and young adult books, and reference materials for the library. We also sponsor several library programs, including park passes for library patrons. One of our services is the delivery of books to the homebound.

We like to see all our Friends at our events and programs. However, we realize that not all people are able to attend meetings or various events and that's all right. Friends may help out in other ways. They can make donations of time to an event, bake or book sales, do mailings or help out in the library.

The book sales are: the first Friday in October, 5:30-7:30 (First Dibs for Kids--no adult allowed in without a child) and the first Saturday in October, 8 am -noon (open to everyone); and the Saturday before Valentine's Day in February

If you would like to join the Friends, please fill out and return the application.
