Library Remains Closed Until Further Notice

UPDATED 5/11/20
Greetings from Fiske Library.  Wish we had some encouraging news but it's probably going to be another while.  We hope you've had a chance to visit some of our free online offerings.  Ancestry.com is now available remotely-such a wonderful treat hopefully you take advantage. (Previously it was only available from within  the library.) The existing link under RESOURCES - ONLINE DATABASES has the instructions on how to access for FREE.

You are invited to participate in the FLOWER POWER GAME! (All ages welcome!) This is a game we can all play to have fun, make someone feel better, decorate the library, enjoy some time doing good deeds and show your friends, family and neighbors that there is no shortage of kindness in Wrentham. For instructions go to the ADULT or CHILDREN & TEEN PROGRAMS page.

We have added a dozen ebooks from Overdrive and these titles are great for teens-a mix of Rick Riordan, C.S. Lewis and several comics, fantasy and humor. The various Tumblebooks products are being offered FREE for a limited time along with many other products that we would normally have to subscribe and pay for. Try these great products! (see links below).

We continue to keep a selection of free books, puzzles and movies on our outside carts. If you need income tax booklets we have both the State and Federal on the cart.  (Please limit it to one per person, thanks.)  If you like magazines, Flipster has a great online collection – Time, Kiplingers, Bon Appetit, People, Fine Gardening and more – try it. Please take advantage of the many databases available to Fiske card holders. You can find our databases under Resources - Online Databases. You will need to log into the database with your library card #. 
Also you will find many Online Storybooks and Games under the FUN FOR KIDS links. You can easily access these on the website.

The programs that were canceled will be rescheduled if at all possible. Anyone who had signed-up for a program will be called once we have a new date for it.

Please feel free to use the bookdrop to return your items. However, all fines are being waived back to the last day we were open to the public (Saturday March 14) Due dates for most materials have been extended to June 4, and will continue to be extended as necessary.

Anyone who had existing holds on the shelf was given the opportunity to pick up them up before staff were no longer in the building. If you did not get your holds they remain on the shelf and will stay there until we reopen.
