Tax Help

This year, the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide services will be at the library (not the Vic Geary Center). Starting on February 8, you can call your local Tax-Aide at 978-384-0349 or visit to make an appointment for free tax preparation. The volunteers are trained and IRS certified; AARP membership is not required. The service will be available on Mondays and Thursdays, 9:00AM – 2PM. COVID protocols will be in place.

In addition, the library will also have a limited number of tax forms and instruction booklets available to patrons while supplies last.    

Open for Curbside Service


In response to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the region, the library will be adjusting our services to help contain the spread. 

The following changes will be in effect starting Wednesday, December 2:

Doors will be locked. No in-library browsing for the time being.

Items may be borrowed via curbside pickup only. Simply call 382-6011 or use our catalog to reserve an item and call us when you arrive. (No appointment necessary.) We'll meet you out front with your item(s).

The book drop will remain open 24x7. We will continue to "quarantine" returned items for 3 days before checking them in. No late fees will accrue. 

Computers will be available by appointment only, for a maximum of one 30-minute session per day. Call us to book a time and when you have arrived. Note: Please use your computer privileges wisely and efficiently. 

We will also be available to you for passport applications and Notary service, by appointment only. 

The Nelson Room will remain available to book for meetings of under 10, both during and after our open hours.

As always, face masks are required while in the library. 

During this time, the library will be staffed and available by phone and e-mail on our normal schedule:

Mon to Fri 9AM - 5PM (Tuesdays 'til 6PM)
Saturday 9AM - 1PM

Don't forget our digital library services (Overdrive, Hoopla, Kanopy, etc.) are available 24/7 for downloading and streaming.

These changes are in effect until further notice. We will return to normal in-library service as soon as it is prudent to do so.
