Audiovisual Services

All branches of the Somerville Public Library offer a wide range of audiovisual services for our patrons. Our goal is to keep an up-to-date collection, filled with new releases, but also to preserve our core collection. All our libraries have videos and dvds, music cds, and audiobooks available for checkout. Loan periods can be found here. The Central Library audiovisual department has a reference and sheet music/songbook collection, magazines, word processing machines, and a viewing station for movies.
