We offer a full array of programming for different ages, needs, and interests. These programs may be storytime, crafts, summer reading, book groups, performances, and writing workshops. 

Library Cards

Any age person may have a library card. For children, this is a parental decision. A parent or legal guardian must be present to sign the registration form and show identification with their name and current address because they are responsible for the materials borrowed on the child’s card until the child turns eighteen years old.

Reader’s Advisory

We are happy to suggest materials for enjoyment or information for all ages and reading levels. We are available to explain the layout of the children’s room, the arrangement of the library materials, the online catalog, and approaches on how to effectively use the library for your purposes.

General Collection

Our extensive collection includes both fiction and nonfiction books for every level of reader. The nonfiction collection, in general, goes up to grade eight. Our Young Adult fiction, housing the Janet Swain Collection, includes books for people in middle school, high school and beyond. We also have a wonderful collection of DVDs, audio books, music CDs, board books, magazines and reference books.

Parenting Collection

We have a circulating collection of current books and magazines on subjects of interest to parents.


The library’s online public access catalog links to all the materials of the libraries in the Minuteman Library Network and links to the reference and periodical databases supplied by state, regional, and local networks.

School Assignments

We can help students locate information and provide instruction in library usage. This includes teaching them how to work with a wide variety of research tools. We welcome the opportunity to develop topical booklists or set aside materials to be used in the library to support school assignments with advance notice from teachers.

Class/Group Visits

Student visits to the library may be arranged with us and include a tour, library skill instruction, or stories. In addition, we are willing to come to your school or day care facility. As part of this service we can select, by theme or format, a small collection of books to be held at your location for an extended time period.
