Additionally, we offer interlibrary loans for materials that we do not own (borrowing items from other libraries in the state).
Our George V. Durgin collection consists of current, quality business books named after a self-made man. Mr. Durgin viewed libraries as the educators of Everyman, and the collection is supported by ongoing donations from the Durgin family.
On the library's lower level is our book sale room. Look for great deals on audiobooks, paperbacks, hard covers, fiction and non-fiction. This room is only available when the library is open. Please ask at the front desk if the door is locked. There are additional books for sale upstairs at the entrance of the library.
Most materials are checked out for two weeks. Magazines are 7 days. DVDs and Blu-rays are 7 day rentals. There are no fines on late books or DVDs. Please see our circulation policy for more information.
