Books to Go & June Programs

Beginning May 26, the Crisfield and Princess Anne Libraries will be offering Books to Go pickup daily from 11 am to 4 pm in the library lobbies. Please visit this page for further information on requesting materials for pickup.

You may also place holds on individual titles through the library catalog for Crisfield, for Princess Anne, or for Ewell. We are currently limited to items on the shelves in the libraries. After searching, please use the "Narrow Your Search" option on the left to limit results to your local branch. Interlibrary delivery is not operational at this time. If you're using the catalog, please also complete the Books to Go form or call to schedule a pickup time.

Library book drops are now open. For staff and patron safety, all returned material is being quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in. The Somerset County Library does not charge fines, and all due dates will continue to be extended until the libraries are fully operational.

Programs to Go kits will be available starting June 1. For information on registering, as well as information on online programs, please visit this page.
