We are thrilled to announce that the  Palermo Library just received a $2,000 grant to install Microsoft Word on the public computers and to purchase a new staff computer with updated software.  This grant is made from the Saxifrage Opportunity Grants Fund of the Maine Community Foundation at the recommendation of the Waldo County Committee advisors. The new software will be a great asset to patrons and the staff is looking for a new computer to replace its twelve-year-old dinosaur.

With offices in Ellsworth and Portland, the Maine Community Foundation works
with donors and other partners to improve the quality of life for all Maine people.  To learn more about the Foundation, visit

Moratorium on Book Donations and VHS Tapes
Until Further Notice

  Due to a great increase in book donations this fall, the Palermo Community Library directors decided to have a moratorium on book and VHS tape donations until further notice.

We continue to gladly accept DVD and Audio Book donations.

The volunteer staff is busy making shelf room and cataloging the new donations.   If you would like to volunteer to work on the book shelves, please speak with a staff person or call 993-6088 and leave your name and number.

The ongoing book sale is in the back room behind the community room.

We could really use your help!

    Please reach out to friends and neighbors. Sometimes the neighbor-to-neighbor request is the most powerful. Pleading and getting down on one knee may also work. All kidding aside, this is serious. Use your influence. We'll be making some calls to folks who have even slightly expressed an interest. Please do the same. And if some of you who have stepped away for a bit can return, that would be awesome! Thank you so Much!

We would appreciate your financial assistance

Contributions may be mailed to The Palermo Community Library, Route 3, PO Box 102, Palermo, Maine 04354-0102

Please help to financially support our Community Library by taking your recyclable bottles and cans to our local redemption center on Turner Ridge Road...just off Route 3.
Just say, "Credit the Library, please!"

Thank You!

We can provide a detailed and signed receipt for tax purposes (to be completed by Library staff), if you wish.
