National Library Week

It is National Library Week this week and did any of us ever guess that our library, and so many others, would be shut down? The building may be closed, but this is a great time to check out Topsham Public Library online to see how we are still meeting your needs during Covid-19. We keep an updated Stay at Home Mega List, as well as a link to our newsletter that keeps you in the know with Topsham Public Library, and we want to help you Find Your Next Read with ideas compiled by staff members. Don’t forget, with a Topsham Public Library card, you can access ebooks and audio books for free from CloudLibrary. (If you don’t have a library card, click here to find out more.) And if you need internet, park at Topsham Public Library and access the free wi-fi by connecting to the Topsham Public Library link. Don’t worry – during our shutdown a password will not be needed.

We have also added a new feature to our website: a reflections page. This is a page where people can share their thoughts on the situation we currently find ourselves in. If you would like to add to this page, please email You may remain anonymous if you wish.

During this time, perhaps you could spend a few moments to think about Topsham Public Library and what you miss. Is there something that surprises you in your list of what you miss? Is there something that you took for granted and now are much more thankful for? Let us know! You can message us through our Facebook page or you may email me at

I hope you miss us, and let me assure you, we miss you!
