With the COVID-19 safety guidelines related to public libraries recently rescinded, we have been able to restore a number of library services:
Patrons may return items inside or using our exterior bookdrop; we no longer need to quarantine library returns.
In-library seating and study spaces are available. Quiet room reservations will be limited to allow time for cleaning between uses.
Newspapers are back on the shelf for reading in-house.
In-person programming will begin outdoors (weather permitting) June 21st.
This plan could be revised as a result of changes in the public health environment, as well as revisions to state and federal guidance.
A note about our meeting rooms: We are not accepting reservations for our meeting rooms until the Fall. The Library will need the summer to determine our space needs for programming and Town related activities.
Ms. Teresa has been busy planning for Summer Reading!
Full brochure of planned activities available when you sign up. Program runs Wednesday, June 23rd through Thursday, August 12th.
Do you miss Storyhour? Ms. Teresa does too and she is very excited that in person Storyhour starts up Monday, June 21st!!!

Photography by Ben Gebo

During the months of June and July the Great Ponds Gallery will exhibit photography by Apponequet graduate Ben Gebo. Mr. Gebo, currently residing in Brighton and working as a professional photographer, has traveled with camera in hand from the American Southwest to the majestic islands of the Galapagos. His exhibit will showcase his travels which led him back home, sharing aerial shots of Lakeville taken via drone.
