  • Children's Room Remodeling Article Passed!
    Thank you, West Newbury!

    ARTICLE 15 at Town Meeting passed unanimously! The Library will continue to remake the Children's Room into a dynamic early learning space.

    The  Book Launch with Elizabeth Atkinson, supported by the Friends of the West Newbury Library, Page School students and teachers, and many more, kicked off this project by installing new shelving for books on CD, on the right as you enter the Children's Room.

    Look for changes in September as the mobile bookcases are installed as well as some new interactive furniture!
