Children's Book Bundles
Book bundles for children are still available!

We know that half the fun of picking out children’s picture books is browsing and choosing ones with beautiful colors. Since it’s tough to do online or in a short time, you can either choose from pre-selected themes or have our Children’s Librarian, Ms. Taylor customize a bundle for you based on your child’s interests.

Themed bundles include:
Dinosaurs & Dragons; Princesses, Unicorns & Other Sparkly Things; Trucks, Cars & Things That Go; Pets; Sweet & Sentimental; and Ms. Taylor’s Favorites.

Call the Library or email taylor@marlborolibrary.org to choose your picks!
Children's Library Appointments
For safe browsing, families can make an appointment with Ms. Taylor by emailing her at taylor@marlborolibrary.org. As we have limited capacity, it is strongly encouraged that families schedule an appointment to ensure entry into the Library at a specific time.

Did You Take the 2020 Census Yet?
Only 57.4% of Marlborough residents have responded to the Census. Be sure to complete the 2020 Census today! The deadline to complete the Census has been moved up to September 30, 2020!

Did you know? Funding for our local schools, Head Start programs, roads, Medicaid, community development grants, and more are all based on how many people are counted in the Census? Your response to the 2020 Census will affect not only the funding we receive for these important resources in our community, but also our representation in the federal and state governments.

For more information, visit www.2020Census.gov.
