May 20, 2020 Covid 19 Update - We know everyone is concerned about the Coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak.  Please go to the Town Of Bourne Website for updates on what the Town is doing and updates from town officials.  AS OF NOW, The LIBRARY and ALL TOWN OF BOURNE BUILDINGS are closed to the general public until further notice. 

We are excited that the Governor has begun the plans for reopening businesses in Massachusetts.  PLEASE NOTE that at this time, there is no set date for the resumption of in-person library services.  We are working on plans on how best to create a safe environment for both library staff and patrons to return to the library.  Once we have this in place, we will promote the new services and systems. 
In the meantime, we encourage you to use all of our online resources for books, audios, movies, music, magazines and so much more.  Click on our digital services banner above to see all we have.  If you need assistance, please reach out to us through e-mail.  Sara Rose will help with any technology questions (srose@bournelibrary.org) Terry Johnson (tjohnson@bournelibrary.org) Irja Finn (ifinn@bournelibrary.org) or Patrick Marshall (pmarshall@bournelibrary.org). 

You may also call the library at 508-759-0600 ext 6108 and leave a message. Library staff will get back to you as soon as possible.  Please disregard any overdue notices you may receive and hold on to materials you have checked out as our book drop is closed.  ALL LIBRARY MATERIALS HAVE BEEN RENEWED UNTIL JUNE 30, 2020.  ALL ITEMS ON HOLD HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TOO.

If you need a  library card, please e-mail one of the staff members above or call the number above and leave a message.  We will get back to you as soon as we can to help you get a card.   We will do our best to keep you all updated on what's happening here at the library through this website and our Facebook page.  Thank you for your patience as the entire town figures out how to navigate these unique times.  More information on COVID-19 can be found on the Mass.gov website.
