BUCKSPORT — There is a new librarian at Buck Memorial Library and other changes are underway.
The changes include renovations like painting the historical library, adding new book collections to the shelves and using more modern technology that is compatible with a digital library system.
Librarian Lisa Ladd said this is all in an effort to make the library run more efficiently.
“That is what the board decided, that they wanted us to be what is traditionally a public library with an integrated library system where people can look books up on their laptop or on their devices, with story hour and programing, trying to reach all sectors of the population,” Ladd said.
The new librarian said she hopes Buck Memorial Library will become a primary community resource and provide a welcoming environment.
