Reference Resources and Services
The Mattapoisett Free Public Library maintains a print reference collection as well as electronic resources for assisting patrons of all ages with their information needs.  Every question will receive the full attention of the staff on duty.  Please visit the library in person, call the staff, or email the Reference staff at  The library's telephone number is 508-758-4171.
The library staff is eager to assist patrons in their search for books, articles, or web resources.  Staff members are also able to conduct preliminary searches and gather materials for a patron's consideration as he or she prepares for in depth research.
Many databases are available for searching both from within the library and from home.  A library User ID will be needed.  Many databases contain full text articles from popular and scholarly publications and well as newspapers and reference books.  Click here to access the databases.
All reference transactions are confidential.  You may email the reference librarian directly at  We look forward to serving you.   
Stop in the library to use Ancestry! This is an in-library resource.
Ask staff members if you need assistance.
