Telehealth Services now available

Cary Library joins a cohort of 10 libraries across the state in providing telehealth services, a pilot program of the Maine State Library. Telehealth uses technology to provide access to real-time appointments with healthcare providers from a distance. Individuals who opt to receive telehealth care from their healthcare provider can now book the Telehealth Room at Cary Library for their appointment. The library provides a private room equipped with a laptop, camera, computer mouse, lights, headphones, and other technology relevant to telehealth needs. Cary Library is excited to be a part of the Maine Libraries Health Connect Program. Types of care that can be provided through the Cary Library Health Connect Program include wellness visits, requesting or renewing prescriptions for medications, follow-up appointments, consultations with specialists, nutritional counseling, mental health counseling, and other non-urgent conditions.  The Telehealth Room will be available for appointments beginning May 10th. For more information please call 207-532-1302.

Story and Craft Time Program

On Wednesday afternoons Story and Craft Time is delivered through Facebook! Every Wednesday at 3:00 pm we will be uploading two videos--in the first, Miss Hayley will read a book to you and in the second she will take you through a craft related to the book. These videos will be prerecorded and will stay up on Facebook for a few months, so you do not have to worry about tuning in on time. The crafts will require materials you can find or substitute with items from home, but we will also have the needed materials bagged up and available for pickup during the week of the craft starting Wednesday morning through Saturday morning. We would love to see your creations in the comments of the craft videos or emailed to library@cary.lib.me.us. We hope you join us!
