New logo for the library
We have a new look to match our new soon-to-be-released website.
Paul Pratt Memorial Library received two grants
The Paul Pratt Memorial Library has been awarded two grants from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
One Train, One Book and Equal Access for All
Through the generosity of the family of Barbara Chase, the library has acquired a desktop video magnifier. The magnifier allows those with vision loss to read anything. Stop by and give it a try!
Complimenting our goal of Equal Access for All, the library has purchased four assistive listening devices for use in the library. These devices allow those with hearing loss to better hear what our library staff are saying.
Perkins Digital Talking Book Collection
Our library is an institutional member of the Perkins Library at Perkins School for the Blind. This membership enables us to offer eligible people to check out a digital talking book player and an assortment of talking book cartridges. Visit the Reference desk to learn more.
