Reference Department

Whenever you need help finding information, ask a Reference Librarian. They know the library's sources and are experienced searchers. They answer any question ranging from how to spell a word to showing you how to use our e-books.

We've got a whole new webpage set up to tell you all about the unusual stuff you can borrow from the library. From digital microscopes to State Park passes, from Maker Kits to our telescope we're sure we've got something that will surprise you!

Take a look at what we've got and give Reference a call at 947-8336, shoot us an email at reference@bpl.lib.me.us, or stop by to find out how to reserve your nifty device, tool, or kit today! We're beyond just words around here.
