Our Website Has a New Look!

You will have noticed some changes to our website recently. While not a complete overhaul, we have implemented several enhancements to navigation and design with the goal of making the website easier to use, and information easier to find.

Some of the changes include:
- A larger, more prominent Catalog Search interface 
- One-stop shopping for library programs and registration
- Easy to find links to museum passes, downloadable books and magazines, and wifi printing
- Redesigned Landing Pages with no drop-down menus

We will continue to make improvements to the website over the next several months. If you have any questions please contact the library at 978-774-0554.
