Well, 2020 sure did happen! The library went through a whirlwind of opening our doors, closing them, creating curbside services, opening again, closing again, OH MY! Through it all, Attleboro residents kept on reading, watching, listening, and playing. Which titles, you ask?
To start, let’s chat about Hoopla! Do you know you can access it free with your library card? Check out music, books, and more! The #1 “check out” for music on Hoopla for 2020 was (drum roll) Taylor Swift’s Folklore.
