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.

The Worcester Public Library has undergone many upgrades of the building as well as the library's virtual offerings and services:
Children's Library Playscape
First Floor Free Space
The library also offers many virtual, online and remote services. The library has a broad collection of eContent available to residents of Worcester. The Talking Book Library provides services to residents who are unable to read traditional print materials due to a visual or physical disability. These services include recorded stories created and curated by staff, audio descriptions of events happening at the library, featured stories read by WPL librarians and more. Training and classes to learn new skills for jobs or personal enjoyment are now available for adults, teens or children. Hybrid programming, online and in-person programs, meets the needs of those who cannot make it to the library as well as those who do not have access to online programs.
Worcester officials announced this week that updated COVID-19 boosters are available at City-run clinics effective immediately. Furthermore, in an effort to provide enhanced support for residents, the Department of Health and Human Services is partnering with AIDS Project Worcester (APW) to boost capacity to deliver both monkeypox and COVID-19 vaccines.
