Ames Free Library

"Where the Community Connects"

LIBRARY CLOSED TO PUBLIC & STAFF THROUGH MAY 4, 2020 - Please check back for updates

 

The Town of Easton and Easton Select Board have declared a State of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, March 23, the Governor of Massachusetts issued an order for non-essential businesses to close their physical buildings to workers and the public, while encouraging those businesses to operate remotely. Given that proactive flattening of the contagion will serve Easton in the long run:

 

  • The Ames Free Library and Queset House will be closed to the public and to staff through May 4, 2020.
  • All public programming and private group meetings at the Library and Queset House are suspended until further notice.
  • "Holds pickup" window is now closed, based on the direct recommendation of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC).
  • Please do not return any materials while the Library remains closed. All items are now due April 15, and there will be no late fines accruing during the period the Library remains closed.
  • As always, a range of online resources are available here on the website, 24/7, including our online reference services and brand-new, online Storytimes!  You may also register for a library card online. Library staff are continuing to work hard on increasing innovative online programs, so keep checking back for updates.

Birdhouses! with Tim Hurley

Welcome to a free and fun hands-on workshop with veteran builder and craftsman, Tim Hurley! 
 
Learn to assemble a birdhouse that can attract bluebirds or chickadees, wrens, sparrows and other nesting birds. All supplies will be provided, thanks to a grant from the Easton Cultural Council.
 
This is a family activity so class size is limited to the first TEN registrants and their families. All are welcome to observe, help, and add to the conversation on birds and their habitats. Each family that is registered can leave with ONE birdhouse.

This program is supported by a grant from the Easton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
