Attention OVERDRIVE users

You will soon need a PIN, along with your libary card, to access Overdrive downloadable books. Your PIN is what you use to sign on to the library catalog to place holds. If you do not know or remember your PIN, or have any trouble with Overdrive, please call us at 382-6733 or email director@colbymemoriallibrary.org. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 
Curbside pick-up and return
Patrons may place holds directly in the catalog, by emailing us at orders@colbymemoriallibrary.org or calling 382-6733. We will call you when your order is ready.
Returns are also accepted during curbside hours which are Mondays 1-7:30, Wednesdays 10:00-3:00, Thursdays 10-3, and Saturdays 10:00-12:30.
Not sure what you want? We can help! We're happy to make up a bag of books, videos, or audiobooks based on what you like. We also have lists in our catalog of our newest titles as well as lists curated by genre. Holds may be placed directly from the lists.
New to town or don't have a card? No problem, we will register you remotely. Email director@colbymemoriallibrary.org.

  • Passwords
    Please email me with questions about accessing the Overdrive ebooks and Audiobooks. My email address is director@colbymemoriallibrary.org 
    We can arrange a time to talk on the phone.

    Also email me if you need password information for EBSCO. Our licensing prohibits us from posting passwords  but I can email it to you upon request.

    We are now able to temporarily offer Ancestry at home!  Normally this is an in-library use only tool,. Ancestry includes millions of census, immigration, military and vital records as well as historical images, maps and more.

    You must sign into your library account to access Ancestry. Click on the Manage Your Account link in the upper right hand corner of this page. Your username is your library card number. If you do not know your password, email me at director@colbymemoriallibrary.org and I can set up up with a new one.

    Reminder about Curbside Services
    If you haven’t tried our curbside services you are missing out on the opportunity to get the latest books and videos. We, however, understand that some patrons may be uncomfortable borrowing items. 
    In order to be as safe as possible, all books and videos are quarantined, in between users, for a minimum of three days. We follow CDC guidelines while in the library and while preparing your orders. That includes daily temperature checks, health screens, mask use and rigorous hand hygiene.
    Patrons may place holds directly in the catalog, by emailing us titles at orders@colbymemoriallibrary.org or calling 382-6733. 
    Not sure what you want? We can help with that too. We're happy to make up a bag of books, videos, or audio books based on what you like.
    We also have lists in the catalog of our newest titles as well as lists curated by genre. Holds may be placed directly from the lists. When orders are complete, we’ll let you know.
    New to town or don't have a card? No problem, we will register you remotely. Email director@colbymemoriallibrary.org for assistance.
    The EXPANDED hours of curbside pick-up are as follows:
    Mondays: 1 PM to 7:30 PM
    Wednesdays: 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
