Wentworth Hall is Moving!


This will be an exciting year as Wentworth Hall is transformed once again, as it has so many times throughout its long and historic tenure, as a revitalized and re-imagined community space! 

Extensive renovation of the Wentworth Hall building and construction of the new addition is expected to proceed throughout 2020. The new space will include the Islington Branch Library, Youth and Family Services Offices, and a multi-functional community space. For the most up-to-date information about the project visit the Town’s Website for Islington Updates. 

  • On Thursday, October 17th, the Islington Branch Library will close to the public at its current location. Drop by the library on October 17 for a fond farewell.  The Library will move to a transitional space -- what library staff are calling a “Pop-Up Library,” in the Islington Community Center at 288 Washington Street. This location will provide library services and programs in Islington Center during the 2019-2020 construction period.

  • A schedule of hours and activities at the temporary location will be posted on the Library’s webpage.

  • There may be a short transitional period to set up the new “pop-up” space.  During that time, all patron requests for materials (holds requests) will be available at the Main Library.  Once the “pop-up” library is operational, patrons will be able to pick up holds at either location.

  • For additional information about the branch temporary quarters and general information about relocation and programs/services, contact Claire Connors at cconnors@minlib.net, or contact staff at the Islington Branch Library: 781-326-5914. 

Library Trustees, Library Staff, and the Friends of the Westwood Library look forward to serving you at our Temporary “Pop-Up” location at the Islington Community Center. We are also looking forward to welcoming everyone to the newly re-vitalized and re-imagined Wentworth Hall Community Space in Fall 2020!
