Buildings closing starting December 17th
The Falmouth Public Library and our East and North branches will be closed to the public beginning Thursday, December 17th.
As we see increased levels of the COVID virus in the Falmouth Community, we find it is necessary to close the library buildings and return to Curbside Delivery of materials. This decision is not made lightly. It is based on an overall concern for the health and safety of both the library staff and patrons.
While the library buildings will be closed, we are still open for phone, email, and Text-a-Librarian with the following hours (pickup 10-4 all days)-contact each location for more details on outside pickup.
