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.

Stories and Songs Online!

Miss Jess is hosting a variation of our weekly storytimes! These sessions will look a little different than our library storytimes, but we want to help you keep up your regular routines.

Each day will feature your familiar songs and rhymes, along with a few ideas to keep you reading at home. You can now find us on ECAT at our regularly scheduled times (Comcast 97, Verizon 24), or click here to go straight to the videos.

For your own storytimes at home, here are some links to free online storybooks that your little ones will enjoy!
