The library will close at 1 PM on Wednesday, 12/24, Christmas Eve. The library will be closed on Thursday, 12/25, Christmas Day and on Friday, 12/26. We will reopen on Saturday, 12/27 for our normal hours. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
Our library was beautifully decorated for the holidays by Karen, Sherri and Jenna. We want to thank them for their time and extra effort on our behalf. The decorations on the trees were made at Mrs. Ballou’s Holiday Craft afternoon.
Just a reminder to all—please do call before coming out in any bad weather. We do not want you to worry about late fees—we will happily renew and forgive. We want you all to be safe!

Rodney Towne installed the New Boston 250th Anniversary Quilt in the Community Room of the library. The frame is made from wood recycled from Town Hall renovations. Have you been in to see this beautiful quilt yet?
