  • We have a computer available if someone needs to check email or print something out. It can be reserved in 30 minute increments from 9-1, call to reserve a time 508-428-5757.
  • Need a library card to access our Udemy database? call 508-428-5757 between 9-1 M-F.
  • Look for things on our lawn, such as a beach ball, corn hole game or grabbers for trash pick-up & community service.
  • If you have a questions call M-F 9-4 and we can see what we can do to help.
