    Library Open from 1PM-5PM

    The library trustees and director would like to take this opportunity to ask your patience and understanding while the library undergoes an oil to gas conversion. The grant process from National Grid and Guardian has been in the works for close to 3 years. Many hands have worked to secure the grant and upgrade the library’s heating system. After several stops and starts work is now scheduled to begin Jan 3 and completed Jan 12. Meanwhile the library will have no central heat. Space heaters will have limited use due to the library’s limited electrical system, and a heater in the reference room (part of the HVAC) will supply some heat.

    Therefore the library will not operate on its usual schedule. We plan to be open from 1-5 PM January 3-12. Please call 978-526-7711 before coming to the library to check our opening status.
