Welcome to the Maine Balsam Libraries


We gather in support of the highest quality of service to our patrons through collaboration, training and shared technology. 



We are a consortium in Maine using open-source Evergreen software as its shared integrated library system. This catalog allows patrons to manage their individual accounts online, search one or more of the consortium catalogs and request local library materials online or from other consortium libraries though inter-library loan. 

This collaborative effort was initially funded by a grant from the Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation.
