New Teen Space!
We've Moved!
The Grafton Public Library on 35 Grafton Common is getting ready for our renovation and expansion. (This should be completed by Dec 2020.) In the meantime we've opened a temporary location at the former St. Andrew's Church at 53 North Main Street in North Grafton. Let me give you a little tour of the teen space.
Outside of the building. You can see our book drop has moved with us as well.
Enter through these white doors
Once inside, if you make an immediate right you will be able to access the main desk, adult fiction, adult non-fiction, new adult items, computers, printer/copy/fax machine, as well as the young adult nonfiction (which now lives at the end of the adult nonfiction).
Once you enter the building the shelves on your left will contain any holds that are waiting for you to pick up. There is also a small Friends of the Library book sale, the women/family bathroom and you can just make out on the right the big black bin to put returns in. Soon we will be getting self-checkout kiosks that live in this area as well.
If you walk in further and make a left you will be in a hallway. The doors on the right are the men's room and the reading room which houses newspapers, magazines, and adult graphic novels.

The doors on the left are the director's office, audiobooks and adult video games, and large print. The shelves in the hallway contain DVDs and TV series. At the end of the hall is the entrance to the Children's Room/Youth Services/Teen Space.
Once inside the Children's space you will see two doors along the wall on your left. These are the TWO teen and tween rooms!
This is the first teen room door that you come to.
Inside is my desk, teen video games...
Magazines, graphic novels, new fiction and nonfiction books, audiobooks and (coming soon) summer reading books..
You will also find our small but growing TWEEN collection (suggested for ages 10-14),
We also have a display of teen book lists if you are looking for something new to read. And we just added an additional shelf where the purple cart is pictured that starts the DVDs, Anime, and Manga collections.
Inside the second teen room is the fiction collection. There are also two high top tables for you to use.
When you are looking for fiction the collection starts behind this door in the wood bookcase that's in the middle of this photo. There are also orange letters that tell you when a new letter begins to making finding your book easier.
We have a chalkboard in this room as well. Each month we will change the question. In May the question is "What are you doing this summer?" Stop in during the month of June for another question.
Another view of the teen fiction room (as seen from the door coming from the children's space.
Another great thing about moving is that we now have the space to host programs at the Library!
Inside this room is where D&D, teen crafternoons, movie nights and more will happen.

Stop by and check out the space for yourself! We'd be glad to show you around.
