Dear Friends,

Welcome to your Library! Yes, your Library. This is your place to read, learn, stretch, explore, make connections, and dream big. Whether you want to borrow an ebook, bring your family to storytime with caring, dedicated children's librarians, participate in our celebrated English as a Second Language program with super volunteers and staff, or need research from our expert reference team, we are here for you.

Relish the experience! And please don't hesitate to drop me a line with questions, comments, and suggestions.

All the best,

Maria Carpenter
Director
Somerville Public Library
Expanding Minds, Connecting Community
