    2020 was a year like none other due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The year began as a typical year only to come to a screeching halt in March when the Commonwealth went into lockdown. Like many other public libraries across the state, Library staff worked from home and continued to serve the public by communicating with patrons via social media, providing website updates, help with digital services, email and phone assistance.

    SUMMER READING RESULTS

    Imagine Your Story graphic

    Thank you everyone for such a wonderful summer! This year we were unsure of how participation in a mostly virtual Summer Reading Program would be. You really knocked our socks off!

    • • We had 115 participants, ages 0-18!
    • • Last year we had 224 participants, who read a total of 884.5 hours!
    • • This year our readers logged.... 929 hours!!!!!
    • • Our readers collected 187 Prizes (and not everyone has checked in with us yet)!
    • • We handed out around around 65 craft kits and storytime kits a week (6 weeks, for a total of around 390 craft kits... WOW)!

    Thank you so much for your support, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. We are taking a brief break from Youth/Teen Programming until September. We plan on continuing to offer Virtual Storytimes and Programs, along with accompanying take Home Craft/Activity Kits.

    An EV Charge Station's now at The Stevens Memorial Library

    EV Charging Station

    The Ashburnham Energy committee is happy to announce the installation of a Level 2 EV charging station. The station is located at the East (Water street) side of the Stevens Memorial Library, and has two charging cords available for use.

    The charging station was made possible by a grant from the Commonwealth through the State's "Green Communities" competitive grant program, with additional financial support provided by your Ashburnham Municipal Light Plant (AMLP) and the Town's Economic Development Committee. Additionally, the Town's DPW provided all site preparation and finish work for the required infrastructure.

    The two parking spots immediately in front of the station are marked for EV parking only."
