Limited Browsing Hours Due to COVID

We have recently changed our browsing hours! During these hours, you can visit the library without an appointment to browse for books, use the computers, or pick up your requested materials.  Please keep your visit to an hour or less.

Limited Browsing Hours:

Sundays - 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Tuesdays - 2:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesdays - 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Thursdays - 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

When safe, the library will return to normal operating hours.  Staff will be in the building during regular hours and can offer no contact pickup via the side door at times not designated for in-library browsing. Please call the library at (508) 758-4171 if you have questions.
