Library Closure-Letter from Trustees

Dear Westwood Readers and Library Users:

However, we remain committed to extending our online options, and continuing to provide creative and innovative services and resources to our community. Check out our website and Westwood Public Library Facebook Page for special updates created by our library staff and some of your favorite authors, including storytimes, book suggestions and other postings to inform, amuse, educate, or just provide a diversion!  We miss all of you - and hope to see you again soon. If you have a question for library staff, email us as ASK-A-LIBRARIAN and we will respond withing 24 hours.

24/7 OPTIONS Ebooks & Digital Downloads:

If you have a Westwood Library Card you have access to all of our digital options 24/7,

For those without a Westwood Library Card, you can create a temporary Minuteman e-card which will allow access to many of our digital collections, including Overdrive eboosk and audiobooks, as well as state-wide databases.

You can also access the Boston Public Library Online Collections as well. Visit to register for a temporary BPL e-card online.  Online Access is available to anyone who lives, works, attends school, or owns property in Massachusetts.
