Takeout & computer use by appointment available 6 days a week. Online services available 24/7.
It has now been one year since we were able to offer our normal services due to Covid-19. It's hard to believe we've only seen most of you through our Takeout window. While we are grateful that our building's design has allowed for face-to-face service, we understand that for a lot of you it's just not the same. Please know we are actively working towards safely opening the building for more than computer appointments. This is a multi-step process, and one that involves our own Board of Trustees, the Town's Board of Health and other Town officials. We hope to announce our plans soon. In the meantime, take good care of yourselves.

We have physical magazines available to pickup, but there are also 50 titles available to borrow in OverDrive/the Libby app - no waiting and plenty of back issues to keep you busy.
Our Children's Room has many titles (new and favorites) waiting to be checked out by kids and their families. Click on images to enlarge them.
Check out Beanstack!
Acushnet readers - you logged over 42,000 minutes in our Snowed In challenge! For those keeping track, that equaled 2,800 snowballs. We'll be washing those off the library windows as fast as we can, in our excitement for Spring! Learn more about Beanstack and our current challenges here.
"Take and Make" - a project to do at home!
We still have Pot of Gold kits for ages 3+!
Thanks to the generosity of one Acushnet family, we also have a limited number of Easter egg decorating kits for ages 3+. Eggs are not included.
Stopping by for a kit? Call in advance to request books, movies and more, too!
