Welcome to Fiske Public Library

New Fine Policy
Effective January 2022 the Fiske Library Trustees voted to go “fine free.”  This does not apply to the “Library of Things”or Museum Passes (both $5.00 a day overdue), nor does it apply to LOST ITEMS or items from other libraries. Rental Books will continue to be $1 a week with walk-in renewal allowed and .25 a day overdue.
We will continue accepting “food” as a donation, BUT NOT FOR FINES.

Library of Things
We finally have THE LIBRARY OF THINGS ready!! The Library of Things (STUFFBRARY in the catalog) is a collection of non-book items that Wrentham residents (18+) can check out with your library card. Check the website under the drop-down “Books and More” for a list of what is available. There is also a looseleaf notebook at the front desk with descriptions of each item.

AI Games
Artificial Intelligence is an exciting and interesting new technology which is already impacting our lives! The Library has a set of games featuring some AI Activities located in the Children's Room created by Sheela Pandit, KP Class of 2022! Please fill out the survey in the game box as well!

Friends Scholarship
The Friends of the Fiske are pleased to announce that they will once again award a scholarship to a graduating high school senior. The senior must be a Wrentham resident, but does not need to attend high school in Wrentham. The recipient will be chosen based on an essay. Interested students should check with their Guidance office for application information and deadlines. All applications are collected by KPHS – students who do not attend KPHS should contact KP guidance for the full list of scholarships and requirements. Please do not contact the Friends or the Library directly.

Thank You
THANK YOU TO THE SOHOANNO GARDEN CLUB AND THE LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE FOR THE VALENTINE GNOMES DECORATING THE LIBRARY! COME CHECK THEM OUT!
