SUNDAY HOURS:  Resume on Sunday, Jan. 8 thru Sunday, April 30. On Sundays the library is open from 2 to 5 p.m.

 Story Time and Book Club Registration: Monday, Jan. 9 at 6:30 p.m.  For the first time we are having an ONLINE Registration so that families can sign-up from the ease of their homes, businesses or even on their cell phones from anywhere.  Further, this option “evens out the playing field” so that a parent who is home with a baby, or just getting in from work, etc. doesn’t feel stressed about missing out on Storytime or Book Club spots just because they can’t make it in to the Library. Folks are still welcome to come to the Library at 6:30 p.m. to register; we will show you how to register online or do it for you. Registering via the telephone will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 10 a.m.  Please feel free to call the Children’s Department anytime (978-399-2302) to find out how to register for programs online.
