Sulma Rubert-Silva, Interim Director
As of March 16, the Worcester Public Library is closed until further notice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and stay at home advisory. The Library is now offering virtual services and online programs.
In an information-rich and culturally diverse society, the Worcester Public Library is a source of civic activity and pride, offering opportunities for the development of a literate and informed citizenry. Today's library is a vital and vibrant place of information and learning, used and valued by people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. All library locations and staff are devoted to assisting Worcester's residents in this information-rich society in which we live.
For more information, please visit the official Worcester Public Library website.
The Public Services librarians bring the library's in-person services to the people in the community while they are stuck at-home. In addition to calling the library at 508-799-1699, or emailing them, anyone may request a one-on-one virtual help session with a staff member.
The Library now offers four virtual services that you can use from home:
Patrons may receive help for these services via telephone, email, or a virtual meeting, which ever method works best for staff and patron.
In addition to these virtual services, the Children's Librarians will be posting 3 daily kids' activity videos. They will also be doing Virtual Visits including storytimes, activities and book recommendations. Adults will do a 15 minute read aloud each day on Facebook Live at noon and a quick two minute book talk/recommendation at 4 p.m. every other day.
The Worcester Public Library has library branches located throughout the city. For complete location and hours information, please visit the official Worcester Public Library website.
