Takeout & computer use by appointment available 6 days a week. Online services available 24/7.
It's February, and as we put together this newsletter, we can't help but wonder....are you feeling the mid-winter blues? Between the pandemic and the cold days, we're all facing our own challenges. We'd like to help you through it by encouraging you to use one of our services.
Maybe you'd like to delve into a new author or series? We have you covered there with many recommendations below. Call us for even more!
Maybe you'd like to recommend books, movies or other items you'd like to see in the collection? Did you even know that you can do that? Well, you can! Email email@example.com. We're always open to suggestions and will do what we can to make it happen.
Maybe you'd like to donate to someone in need in our own area? Learn more about both the annual pajama drive and our ongoing non-perishable food collection for the Shepherd's Pantry below.
Maybe you'd like to file your taxes sooner rather than later? We have both federal and state tax forms (plus instruction booklets) available at our Takeout window!

We still have a few Valentine heart kits for ages 3+!
In honor of February vacation week, we will also have a limited number of snowman pony bead keychain kits for ages 5+ starting Friday, 2/12. Thanks to the Friends of the Acushnet Public Libraryfor funding these kits.
Stopping by for a kit? Call in advance to request books, movies and more, too!
Also, thanks to the Friends, we have a limited number of Sailor's Valentine kits for teens and adults. This Take and Make project was inspired by a Creativebug video. Learn more about that new online service below.
