We can't possibly buy every book that might be of interest to our patrons, but we can extend the library shelves out into the world by using interlibrary loan services to provide what you want to read. If you don't see it here, just ask. We will be happy to send a request for your book through the interlibrary loan system which connects thousands of libraries nationwide. This is a free service that can help you get the materials you want and need quickly . . . just ask.
We have three computers that have access to the Internet. Patrons may use 30-minutes per day, plus more if nobody is waiting.
Wireless Internet (WiFi)
The library also offers wireless access for laptop users. Our wireless access to the public free of charge. The network is on twenty-four hours a day, making the service available inside during open hours and accessible outside the building after hours.
Patrons are asked to review the Internet Use Policy available in the library before using the network.
We have a photocopier and two printers for public use. There is a fee of $.20 for each.
MARVEL! provides every resident of Maine with access to a collection of full text articles and abstracts from magazines, newspapers, journals and reference books that are credible, reputable resources. Registration is required for home use. Please contact the library for assistance.
The online catalog of the University of Maine System, Bates & Colby Colleges, the Maine State Library in Augusta and Bangor Public Library, enables us, through the Internet, to request materials for you quickly. Next time you're in the library, ask for a demonstration!
Programs For All ages
We provide programs all year long including Monday morning story hours, an after school reading program for kindergarteners through 4th grade, an adult book discussion group and others. The Friends of the Brooksville Free Public Library support many of these programs.
The Brooksville Free Public Library is open every Monday and Wednesday from 9 - 5; Thursday evening, 6 - 8; and Saturdays, 9 - 12, all year-round.
