We appreciate your patience, and continued library use, during the past 18 months as our building has been closed, first for COVID-19 and then for renovations. We are in the final stages of the renovation project, but we have one more sizable disruption to go. Very soon, the outside area of the library, including the sidewalk, ramp, entrance, stairs to the parking lot, and the 30-minute parking spaces will be updated to meet ADA requirements. Unfortunately, the demolition work will prevent the public from accessing the library for about two weeks– from Monday September 13th to ABOUT Monday, September 29th. What does this mean for you?
We will not be able to offer curbside service. Our book drop will be inaccessible so items will not be able to be returned at this location. We will extend the due dates for all items that have been checked out at the Attleboro Public Library so that you will not incur any late fees. Book drops at other SAILS network locations can be used.
During our short closure, we encourage you to visit other local libraries. The Seekonk Public Library, Richards Memorial Library in North Attleboro, in addition to libraries in Mansfield, Norton, and Plainville are all part of the SAILS Library Network. They can accept your returns and have excellent collections for you to explore. Please take the time to review each library’s visiting policies and procedures as they differ from building to building. There is a drive-up book return in Plainville at the Beatrice Wood Elementary School at 72 Messenger Street.
Remember that you can access e-books and e-audio books with your library card using Libby and Hoopla, as well as movies using Kanopy. Check out our website for information regarding all of our virtual services. Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We cannot wait to open the doors to YOUR library once again in the very near future!
