Converse Public Library

UPDATE AS OF August 28:

Demolition has started to open up the Library, between the circulation desk and the adult section.  We're looking at 6-8 weeks of noise, dust, disruption, and more noise!  However, when it is finished, we will have more space to spread out and socially distance people and computers!  Bear with us during this.  During this time, access to the adult section is limited.  We encourage you to reserve items online or call ahead and we will retrieve things for you.  If you need to browse, a staff member will escort you outside the building and unlock the adult section....waiting while you browse.  Whatever we can do to make getting your items easier, we will do!  

The Converse Public Library is open for material check out and curbside pick up.  You can make copies, we have FAX service available, and we have some laptops available for 30 minute maximum sessions.  You can print from the laptops. 

Monday through Friday from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm. 

We will be limiting occupancy per the Governor's order and we will limit time in the library to an hour so that we may serve as many as possible.  MASKS REQUIRED and must cover your nose and your mouth!

Starting Monday, August 17 the library will be undergoing a construction project to open up the library and make it more welcoming and make it possible for us to socially distance more computers.  Bear with us during this time....we may run into challenges accessing some of the collection and encourage you to reserve items!

We have missed you, Converse!
