Check out the new Library!

The new Charlotte and William Bloomberg Medford Public Library will be opening to the public on January 3rd at our regular hours of 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Fridays and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.  We are still closed on Sundays.

We’re a work in progress

Unfortunately, we still have limited shelving, so not all of our collection is accessible for browsing and check out at this time.  Due to supply chain issues, we will have limited internet and printing connectivity. Wi-fi will not be available but we will be providing internet access with hotspots.

Holds will be available starting Monday. January will be a fine free month, with fines resuming in February. Returns can be made at the desk or in our two new book drops.

Rooms can be reserved in advance for meetings, and day-of on a first-come first-served basis for individual/small group study.  At this time food and drink can only be consumed in the café area on the second floor.

 Masks are required per the Medford Board of Health. Please observe social distance.
