Blanding Public Library will be closed beginning Tuesday, March 17 until further notice in order to protect the health and safety of our community and reduce transmission of COVID-19. All programs and events are canceled. If you are attending a meeting scheduled to take place in the Library or Goff Hall, please contact the meeting organizer to verify that it is still taking place.
During the closure, we are happy to provide contact-free curbside delivery of items currently in the Library. You may place holds on items with a Rehoboth copy in the online catalog, or call the Library for staff assistance, (508) 252-4236. For now, no new deliveries of items from other libraries will take place until libraries reopen and our delivery resumes.
Due dates for materials will be automatically extended. Any overdue fines accrued during this time will be waived. Expiration dates on library cards will be extended.
While the physical library will be closed, the library’s online services will be available 24/7 from www.sailsinc.org, as well as the Overdrive and Libby eBook apps. You may also sign up for an e-card with Boston Public Library to access additional online resources, https://www.bpl.org/ecard/ .
