We sure miss our busy little library and look forward to the time when it will be safe to welcome you again! 
We suspect that like many places, our opening will be gradual … perhaps starting with curbside pick-up of items, then limited occupancy/services inside, and even “programming to go”.  All of this will be decided upon with guidance from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, Massachusetts Library Systems, Central & Western Mass  Resource Sharing (CWMARS), and of course, our local Health Department and Library Trustees. 

In the meantime, please stay safe and well, and check out all of the resources on this page highlighting learning and entertainment connections available while staying safe at home. 

Tumblebooks has announced free access to their many e-books and audiobooks for all ages through August 31.  

The Tumblebook K-6 link includes games, puzzles, videos, and more!

A wealth of ebooks and audiobooks is available through the Libby app  or via the CWMARS link to OverDrive at cwmars.overdrive.com.  To use Libby ... Install the Libby app from your device's app store. In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card. If you do not have a library card you may sign up on OverDrive or in the Libby app with your cell phone number assuming the billing address is within the CWMARS service area.  Browse your library's collection and borrow a title. If there is a title you are interested in which has a long wait, e-mail us at merriamgilbert@gmail.com, and we can possibly order the title.  Any titles our library owns are made available to our library patrons first before they may be lended to patrons of other libraries, so we can possibly speed up  your wait time for particular titles if we order them.  Just let us know!

CWMARS has extended the due date of all items that you may have checked out. Items are marked due for July 1st even if they have been sent through the Inter-library loan system. The Library book drop remains open for anyone who wishes to return items. Returned items are placed in quarantine here in the Library. Please do not return items if you or anyone in your home has been sick. We will continue to posts updates regularly as things seem to be changing by the hour these days.  

Library update as of Tuesday, March 17, 2020 ...

Very saddened to write that the curbside pick-up we were trying to arrange will not be possible. The Central Mass
Regional Public Health Alliance has instructed libraries to stop the sharing of all materials at this point to limit the spread
of COVID-19.
 
 

As previously posted, the West Brookfield Board of Health closed all town buildings until further notice. 
Thank you.  Stay safe and well.
