Computers and Phone working!

Telephone service to the Library in City Hall was connected this week. The regular library number, 413-322-5640, again reaches the library's public service staff. (During the move, that number had gone only to a recording that announced a cell phone number for interim use.)

The public access COMPUTERS are also up and running, and free WiFi is available. A Fax machine and copiers are also working. Books, CDs, and DVDs may be borrowed for the usual loan periods.

The Library is open during its customary hours:
8:30 A.M. to 8:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday
8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. on Friday and Saturday.

If you haven't already visited this library location, do come! You'll find the library in the Auditorium of City Hall, accessible by elevator, which you can reach from the entrance at the back parking lot. 536 Dwight St, Holyoke.
