This past week we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the Fitchburg Public Library (set to open in June)!
Just blocks from our house, we are thrilled this huge (!!!!!) modern library is coming to our community. We have been lucky to have the bookmobile spot for our area be literally at the end of our driveway so this library is actually farther away for us, but we look forward to a short walk or bike ride to the enormous childrens area, the “storytime” room, and workshops and the sense of community this library will bring to a city without a “downtown” or main street area.
-Select shelves in the childrens area will display books front covers rather than spines for easy selection by non-readers
-Food and covered drinks are allowed in the library!!!! Hallelujah! Your kids can bring their sippies! You can bring coffee so you can keep up with your kids and their sippies! The library has vending machines, including a coffee machine, on the first floor.
Information about the building process is available here. (check out photo 4!!)

For the next few months until opening, the best way to submit questions or comments is through the library’s contact page.
