With the re-opening of the temporary Shrewsbury Public Library at 214 Lake St., the library kicked off the 2015 Sunday Season. The first Sunday opening occurred on Oct. 26, with a steady stream of visitors who found their way to the new site.
Services will be offered at the temporary location for approximately 20 months while construction takes place at the Main Street building.
Despite the change in location, donors continue to support the sponsorship program. Generous donors have already provided enough funds to cover half of the season. With donations received to date, the library will be open at least 15 Sunday afternoons this season, from 1 to 5 p.m., from Oct. 26 through mid-February 2015. If the entire season is funded, the library will be open on Sundays through May 24, 2015.
This is great news for the adults, families, students and others who use the library to catch up on work or homework assignments, connect to the free Wi-Fi, read recent newspapers or magazines, learn about free downloadable eBooks or magazines, use the Early Learning Discovery computers, or just spend time picking out books, audio books or DVDs.
Community groups who use the meeting rooms are also appreciative of access to the facility on Sundays.
