Overview

This public library boasts the first children's library in it's own building built in 1950. The adult library is a great example of mid-century modernism. Both designed by Koch. Lots of local history and information.

Library seems to have a lot of after school clubs for kids. They have a 3D printer you can use and a bunch of new DVDs and cds.

This library was great long time ago. I did use the services for many years, Unfortunately, we can't say the same. Instead, you want to visit the Leominster Public Library.

The town does not support it well enough. The books are old along with the videos and everything else. The computers are very old. The town takes ALL their fines and uses them for the general fund like her raise.

Nice quiet place to study. Some of their computers are outdated and certain websites you can't access. Some of the staff are very friendly and others need an adjustment.
