Service Update, 5/18

The Goodnow Library is closed to the public until further notice.
We know that this is an inconvenience for many, but we believe that this is the best way to preserve the health and safety of the public and the staff.
NEW! Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of library users, volunteers, and staff. We are working closely with other town departments, our library network and neighboring libraries to achieve this. We are also working to obtain sufficient PPE and disinfectant to keep the library users and staff safe. In addition, we are also waiting for some direction from the Governor, who has not yet addressed where libraries—or any government offices—fit into his phased plan.
When the library does open, it will also be in phases. We will most likely remain closed to the public at first, with curbside pickup available.
The library staff will be available by phone (978-443-1035) or email ([email protected]). The library will not be staffed during this time, but staff are checking both email and voicemail regularly and will respond as soon as possible.
