What's New

Every first Tuesday of the month, Teen Librarian Chris Dargelis will setup a Pop-Up Library in the Middleborough High School cafeteria during lunch period. Students will have the opportunity to borrow materials, learn about library programs and services, and register for a library card.
We've added some new and classic self-help, health, and informational titles on sensitive issues that are often difficult to talk about. You can find these books in the nonfiction section of our Teen Area (the aisle next to the teen bulletin board).
