Inside is Closed, But There's A Lot Going On Around the Library


Even though you can't come inside, you can still visit the Central Library. Check out the SHS construction - it's impressive!

Make your way up the ramp (you never know who you'll meet!) and hang out to play chess or use the wifi.

Have a peek at the garden and see what we've got growing.

A lot of things have changed, but one thing that hasn't - you are welcome here!

This turkey gets around!! We see it regularly around Laurel Street and all around the Central Street/Summer Street/Somerville Avenue area. It strolls down Laurel Street from Summer to Somerville Ave. almost every night. Last week, the brazen bird caused a brief traffic jam as it meandered across Laurel Street. Didn't know it traveled as far as the library - but it must enjoy reading, since I've seen it near a little free library on Summer. A neighbor says it's so sassy, it must be a woman ! So we've taken to calling her Laurel. It's great to have a neighborhood mascot!!
