There is no greater resource in the Lower Kennebec Valley than the Gardiner Public Library.
Serving Pittston, Randolph, Gardiner, West Gardiner, Litchfield and Farmingdale, the library offers a wide range of print, electronic and digital resources, as well as community programs. You can also borrow things like tablets, mobile internet hotspots, a state park family pass, and even a pruning pole to remove brown moth nests.
During the difficult times of the past two years, the library has been an unwavering resource for the communities in its service area. And it’s a boon for all of us. The City of Gardiner provides strong annual financial support to the library. The library also receives annual funding in the form of grants, fundraisers, and an endowment from the Gardiner Library Association, the private, nonprofit organization that owns and maintains the library building for the benefit of all. in its service area.
Great things are happening at the library under its new director, Justin Hoenke, and assistant director, Dawn Thistle. The library’s new website is a great resource: gardinerpubliclibrary.org/. Through the Gardiner Digital Library, you can access resources such as the Hoopla streaming service, eBooks, and eAudiobooks.
Stop by the library at 152 Water Street, Gardiner. Discover its collections of books, CDs and DVDs, the Hazzard reading room, the children’s room and the special collections. Library staff can help you access online resources; call 582-3312.
For all of these reasons and more, I support the library at the Pittston Town Meeting at 9:45 a.m. on March 19 at Pittston-Randolph Consolidated School. I encourage everyone in the library’s service area to also vote at their respective town meetings in favor of continuing our community partnerships with the Gardiner Public Library.
