Hours & Directions
Dear Library Readers and Users:
- As we continue to work collaboratively with community partners and the Town of Westwood to mitigate the effects of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), library facilities will remain closed indefinitely, which for now is at least until April 6th, the date currently set for possible re-opening of public schools. This date is still very much in flux, and this date may be adjusted as additional information becomes available. Visit our website at www.westwoodlibrary.org to access all digital resources.
- Library Staff are available 9 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday to provide assistance via phone or email.
- All checked out materials are not due back until May 20, 2020. We encourage everyone to hold onto library materials until normal operations are resumed.
- No Overdues! All fines are being eliminated!
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Main Library and the Islington Branch. In the interim, we hope that everyone remains safe and healthy.
Sincerely, Library Staff and Trustees
