Cook Memorial Library

NOTICE of Service Hour changes during Carpeting and Exterior Painting

Beginning on Monday, September 16, our library building will be closed while two big projects get underway. We plan to reopen on Wednesday, September 25, but check back. We may remain at the Town House on Wednesday and reopen on Friday, September 27 if new carpet smell is too strong.

What’s happening:

  • Carpeting entire main level
  • Painting exterior of oldest section of the library

Rather than close up for 9-10 days, we’re opening a temporary library! Find us down the street at the Tamworth Town House* at 27 Cleveland Hill Road, just down the street from the library.
