COVID-19 Updates

Reopening news


The library is OPEN.



Masks are required inside the library.


Our pickup window will remain open until we move into the new library building in April 2022.


Although the occupancy limit has been lifted, due to our current space constraints, there will be no indoor programming while we are under construction. Check out our Events page for upcoming virtual and offsite programs.


Rice Public Library is a municipal department, and therefore follows all protocols put forth by the Town Manager. COVID-19 guidelines in the library are based on best practices put forth by Maine CDC and Maine State Library
