  • Library Update!
    March 2017
    Outside Signage -
    We have a new sign as you enter the Library. The other sign will be hung on the two granite posts which have been installed for a few weeks now. The signs are paid for by the Trustees.

    We want to thank everyone w
    ho supported the Library Special Article at the last Annual Town Meeting. The Children's Room has undergone a transformation!  We could not have done it without you! We can now hold big programs comfortable in the Children's Room. Storytimes are now accessible to all children! Thank you!

    The Teen Space's furniture was purchased with grant funds  ("Serving Teens and Tweens" grant brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners).

    The walkway and landscaping was funded by the Trustees of the library. There will be a few more plantings in the spring.

    The  Children's Room and Adult Fiction/Nonfiction wing were painted. This was paid for by Building and Grounds budget (maintenance of the building).

    As always, if you have any questions, please ask the staff! We are here to help you!

  • NEW at the Library
    The Library has many online resources for you to use from downloading a book or song to learning a language. Sometimes it may be overwhelming to try to learn which resources are most useful to YOU.

    The Library now has quick tutorials on how to get started on some of these resources. In most cases, there is a short introduction with additional videos on how to get started. Instructions on how to download books also include specific devices. You'll  see them on the Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the tutorials. We hope they will help you!

    We will list here tutorial additions on using social media programs:
