The North Falmouth Branch of the Falmouth Public Library is to be open five days a week!

Beginning on Tuesday, January 3rd the North Falmouth Branch of the Falmouth Public Library, with the help of staff from the West Falmouth Library, will be open five days a week, Monday through Friday for six months.  West Falmouth Library has begun an extensive remodel of their historic 575 West Falmouth Highway building.  It closed on December 12th  and plans are to reopen in June, 2017.  West Falmouth Library is an independent non-profit library corporation and not part of the Falmouth Public Library, but both are members of the regional CLAMS (Cape and Islands Libraries Automated Materials Sharing) library network.  To keep library services readily available for patrons of the West Falmouth Library, the two libraries have agreed to pool their resources.  The North Branch will add Tuesdays and Thursdays to their usual Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule with the additional hours being staffed by West Falmouth Library personnel.  Laurie McNee, North Falmouth Branch Librarian said, “I have met with the West Falmouth staff and am very excited that we can work together to serve the patrons of both villages and all of Falmouth!”

The new hours for the North Falmouth branch beginning January 3rd will be Mondays and Fridays 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM, and Wednesdays 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The branch is located at 6 Chester Street, North Falmouth, at the intersection of County Road.

    So happy to see this. Many years ago I was the librarian for this branch. I started working there after school when I was 12. O was paid a whopping 50 cents an hour! Laurie is doing a great job keeping the place afloat!
