Volunteer needed

Do you enjoy finish carpentry and helping your community? We are looking for someone to refurbish some book carts in our children's department. Materials will be provided by the library. Call or stop by today to see how you can make a difference!

Electronic Newsletters

You can still download them from our Newsletters page, but if you have been receiving them in your email, you will need to sign up again using the link at the top of this page. (Another signup box with additional instructions is on the Newsletters page.) You can also subscribe by selecting Peabody Public Library Monthly Newsletter from the BookNews link below.

Please Note: Our apologies if you received our email update and the hyperlinks don't work. There is a temporary problem with the email service we have been using for this. We will remedy the situation as soon as we can.

Dreams Start at the Library: Make a Wish!

A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question . . ."Where would I find . . . and could you help me?"

Our staff is fortunate to have the opportunity to help people in our community pursue their dreams every day. Our dream is to make your library an even better place for you, your children and grandchildren.

We've created a new online Library WishList. Browse through colorful pages filled with books, volunteer opportunities and items we need for your library. It's fun!

Choose an item you'd like to see at the library, make a contribution towards the purchase (no amount is too small), or sponsor an item in memory of a loved one. When the "wish" is completed we'll let you know, and the next time you're in the library you can see the Wish you helped make come true.

Visit our Library WishList and help make a Wish come true.

Thank you so very much!!
