The Coolidge Library will provide library services to residents of the town, nearby communities, and visitors, for the enrichment of their lives by providing reliable information, meeting individual needs, aiding personal development and literacy, encouraging the enjoyment of reading for its own sake and promoting library use by persons of all ages.
The Coolidge Library endorses the Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read Statement, as adopted by the American Library Association. The Library will challenge censorship or attempted censorship. The library's philosophy is that a person can reject for oneself materials found to be distasteful, but cannot exercise the right of censorship to restrict another citizen's choices in reading matter. Responsibility for what children read rests with their parents or legal guardians, not the library. Freedom of expression is protected by the Constitution of the United States, therefore, any attempt, be it legal or extra-legal, to regulate or suppress materials in libraries must be closely scrutinized to the end that protection is not abridged.
Library hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays 10:00-2:00.
Curbside pickup service will be available during our regular hours of operation. Reserve your items in advance. Wait to schedule your appointment for curbside pickup until you have received notice that your items are ready for pickup.
