Although public libraries are permitted to open as of June 17, the Lucy Robbins Welles Library, along with most other local libraries, cannot yet safely welcome library users back in person, therefore the library building remains closed to the public. The decision to open will be based on evaluation by our local health district, and Town administration, the physical characteristics of our building and our own staffing levels, as well as state-level plans for returning to normal. We appreciate your patience as we work toward this goal and hope that in the meantime you are able to enjoy our collections and available services listed below.
