Leisa’s Place

Our wonderful new Library named in loving memory of Leisa Crane Dedicated July 20, 2017

Biddeford Pool Library

BPCC LIBRARY The Library is now open on Thursday mornings only from 10-12pm. Closed on Thanksgiving and the week of Christmas. We have recently added several newly donated and purchased books. Stop by and check us out! Please remember to return all borrowed books!

While there is construction happening on the building, if things look active, please be mindful of where you park. My understanding is the library will maintain the usual open day throughout construction and needed repairs.

Important Information Below

At this time we are changing the guidelines for donation of materials. The library shelving space has limited capacity for all genres of reading. As of November we will accept books with “published dates” up to 3 years earlier than the current calendar year. It is not possible to keep everything offered. Receiving all these books necessitates someone having to move books unwanted onto another resource. For us that is either Dyer Library in Saco or Goodwill. I suggest that if you are clearing out your book shelves of years of acquired reading that you use these options as well. The Dyer Library welcomes these large book donations of any type except for academic text books. In addition, we are always interested in what you feel would be desirable “recently published” additions to our current offerings. Please call Sue Maccalous (617) 671-5977, with any questions regarding book donations. In addition I will attempt to offer desired titles within the Newsletter for your considered donation. Thank you all for your continued support of our library with both book and financial donations and importantly, your volunteer time.
