Children's Library at 18 Jacobs Road

The Children's Library at 18 Jacobs Road will be open for Takeout Window book check-outs on two Saturday mornings: August 8 and August 15, from 10:00 AM to noon.

Please wear a mask and have one adult come to the Library window. There will be signs to direct you. Lyra will be happy to help find books you are looking for to check out.

In the event of rain we will use the window in the former Principal's office (under the main entryway roof) to greet you and pass out the books.

Any books you check out from the Children's Library may be returned to the outside Returns box at Sawyer Hall in Heath Center.
