Why the Library?

Are you one of those people who says, “I haven’t been to the library since I was a kid,” and thinks this is an accomplishment?

Depending on your age, today’s library may look the same on the outside, but this isn’t the same library you remember. Trust me.

That quiet, tomb-like place full of dusty books and pinch-nosed librarians saying “Shush”? Only in your memories.  Today’s Bigelow Library has public computers, scanning capabilities, movies, video games, live programs (sometimes with animals or music!), and lots of opportunities to collaborate.

We can get you set up with online research tools, free online classes and language-learning software. You can watch videos on the computer.  Got a question? We can help.

We’re not just a warehouse for books. We’re a vibrant part of the community.
