October 2, 2020
We have received many phone calls in regards to Governor Baker including libraries as part of Massachusetts’s Step 2, phase III reopening plans. While we are reviewing our options, the layout of our building provides too many obstacles for us to remain socially distant and allow for browsing at this time.

We are now offering pick up printing services!! E-mail attachments to send2tpl@gmail.com. Tell us when you can come in to pick up your prints (give us at least a day’s notice) and if you want to pick it up curb-side or at the youth services desk. Call 508 821 1410 if you have any questions.

* $0.15 per page *

According to Mass.gov Phase 3 Guidelines for Libraries we are able to open with very limited services for patrons.
