To the Editor:

Dear Bethel Library patrons:

Like all businesses and organizations, the Bethel Library has faced unexpected challenges in 2020, and we are working hard to continue to provide valued library services to the community.

Our “soft reopening,” featuring outside pick-up of preordered library materials, is working very well, and we are looking forward to being able to welcome patrons back inside the library soon.

Our 2019-20 Annual Fund campaign is nearing its end, and with the need to postpone or modify several important annual library fundraisers, we will be relying even more on the generosity of our Annual Fund donors.

If you have already donated, thank you!

If you have not yet made an Annual Fund gift, or would like to make an additional gift, our new website,, provides the option to donate online using PayPal or a debit or credit card, or you may mail donations to Bethel Library Association, P.O. Box 130, Bethel, ME 04217. All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your generosity and support as we navigate these unprecedented times.

Amy Chapman for,

Bethel Library staff and trustees
