Acquisitions at the Library


Mission Statement:

Our mission here at the Stratton Public Library is to offer as wide a variety of books and services as possible for the small town that we live in. We offer material for all age groups and welcome your suggestions. Besides our great selection of books, we have magazines, VHS videos, and audio books on cassette. We also have a small section of large print books plus some from Maine State Library on loan each month. For anything we don't have Maine State Library will loan it to us, so just ask! We have wireless internet and three computers which are available for public use at no charge.


Library Policy:

Library books are checked out for 3 weeks and videos for 3 days. There are no late fees but there is a container for donations on the counter. If a book is lost or needs replacing due to damage we maintain the right to revoke library privileges until said book is paid for. Library cards are free to residents of Stratton/Eustis, Coplin and Carrabassett, nonresidents will pay a refundable deposit of $25.00.


Computer Usage Policy:

There is no charge for the use of the computers. A charge of 25 cents per page for black and white and 50 cents for full color page for printouts. All files you wish to save must be saved to your own floppy disk. New floppies and CD's are available at 75 cents each. As of now, there is no restriction on how long you use a computer, as long as no one else is waiting. If there is a waiting line, you must finish your session within 30 minutes. 


Library Netiquette:

"Netiquette" is short for "Internet etiquette". Like everyday etiquette, it is based on respect for the rights of others, in this case, the library, its equipment, and its other users. Besides following the Computer Guidelines above, this means that you do nothing that might offend other users of the library or of the computers.You do not call up sites with explicit sexual references or graphics. If you should get onto such a site without meaning to, you get out of it right away (Clicking on <BACK> on the tool bar at the top is the fastest way).
