Small Group Meeting/Study Room
The Library offers three small quiet study rooms (1-2 people), one medium-sized study room (3-4 people), and our Local History Room which can be booked as a small meeting room (3-5 people) or for historical research. These rooms can be reserved up to 30 days in advance, for up to two hours at a time (in blocks of 15 minutes). There must be, at minimum, a 2 hour gap between advance reservations made by the same group or individual. The reservation of a study room left vacant for more than 15 minutes will be cancelled and the room made available for other patrons to reserve.
Reservations can be made online or by calling the library at 978-256-5521 x1211.
Please check in at the Reference Desk before entering the study rooms.
