Dear Patrons,
It is with great reluctance and sadness that I must announce that Whelden Memorial Library will be closed to patrons as of 6:00 pm on March 16th.  At this time, we plan to reopen on Saturday, March 28th. However that could change and we ask you for your patience in this constantly changing landscape.  Please know that we have set all materials as fine free through the end of the month of March.
If you need wi-fi, please note that the library wi-fi does reach into our parking lot.  As the weather improves, please feel free to enjoy our outside seating in the back courtyard as well.  We are not stopping deliveries at this time so if you reserve books and they arrive, we will call you and arrange for pick-up from our back deck. At present, calls will be answered and return calls will be done.  If you need materials, either reserve them through the CLAMS website ( or call our lines (508-362-2262) and we will do our best to get these to you. For some of our more vulnerable patrons, we are happy to arrange homebound delivery if we can.
There is a plethora of materials available online as well! You can download Libby by Overdrive on your devices and have access to over 40,000 audiobooks and ebooks. As a Massachusetts resident, you are entitled to a Boston Public Library card that allows you e-access to a multitude of materials. If you go on our website, you will see many different types of databases that contain great articles from some of your favorite magazines whether the subject is roses or engines! If you need help accessing these materials, please feel free to call and we will try and walk you through the process.
Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out either by phone (508-362-2262) or by email (
Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
Kelly Depin, Director
