*Starting Monday, March 16th we are cancelling ALL programs from now until a tentative reopening around March 30th. If you are signed up for one of our programs, Children’s, Teen, or Adult, you hopefully have either gotten a call or an email based on what you signed up with.
*Also starting on Monday, March 16th we will be partially closed. If you went through our small water problem during the summer it will be much like that:
*The Lobby and path to the Main Desk will be open Monday-Friday from 10am-6pm
*You can return books, and you can pick up your holds as well.
*If you are picking something up, we recommend that you call first, and we can have it ready for you.
*There will also be staff at all the desks ready, waiting, and able to take your calls if you want us to pull a book from the shelf.
*On and around March 28th we will be re-evaluating the situation and determining if we will open again or stay closed.
*The Book Sale will not be happening from March 20-March 24. And the library Cannot accept Donations for it at this time either. Stay tuned for new dates for it.
Thank you to all our patrons for your understanding! And we hope that everyone stays healthy and safe.
And, if you have any questions or concerns that have not been addressed here, feel free to contact us 978-686-4080
While we will happily pull things from the shelves for you to read, remember, we’re not just a physical space anymore either. We have many things that you can do from home, all you need is a Methuen Library card.
Overdrive/Libby – Not only can you read eBooks and listen to Audiobooks through Libby (all you need is a phone or tablet), but, now you can read magazines through the app as well! It’s a one stop shop for all sorts of entertaining things.
Mango Languages– It’s a fun language learning program teaching practical conversation and cultural awareness for the world’s most popular languages including English.
Gale Databases – If you’re working on homework these databases provided by the state have many different journals, magazines, even newspapers, and some academic books too. Your teachers and professors will smile when they see you haven’t used Wikipedia.
Freegal – You can download 5 free songs a week with this app or on their website.
Here’s a LINK to all our Online Databases. Or, just go to our Website and poke around a little. I think that you’ll be surprised by how many different things you can see and do through it.
