Today! BOOK SALE at Worcester Public Library, Salem Square! … and MORE HOURS for the Great Brook Valley branch!

Today! Saturday, November 15

Book Sale!

Worcester Public Library

Salem Square

10 a.m. – 4 p.m. – in the Saxe Room

Be there!!


Today might be a good day to check out our city’s main library! (after you go to the book sale)  There are the relatively new library spaces to visit: a bigger, better library book shop filled with lots of other cool stuff besides books – stuff  that you can buy for a song. Your $$ goes to supporting library events for the whole family!

Then there’s the library cafe – yummy muffins and such on sale there. You can enjoy your snack at the little cafe tables outside the library store. Bring your lap tops and enjoy free wi fi at your cafe  tables!

Outside you’ll probably see our city’s two library book mobiles parked in the library lot to the side of the building: LIBBY ( big, converted school bus) AND LILLY (little, converted bus). It would be nice if the WPL opened them up for the public to see. Check out the inside of one of these vehicles and be impressed, like we were several months ago!

WHILE WE THINK ALL THIS IS GREAT, it’s a SHAME that the Worcester Public Library is under-serving some Worcester residents, especially kids.

Our library system’s GREAT BROOK VALLEY BRANCH is open only THREE HOURS A DAY!  Just THREE hours a day!

We are told the Great Brook Valley branch, in one of our city’ s poorest (some would say one of our most challenging) public housing complexes, is JAM PACKED WITH KIDS! All the time!

GBV KIDS and families WHO LOVE going to their branch library. To do homework, to check out books, music, movies … to have a safe place to have fun and learn.

Why isn’t the Great Brook Valley WPL branch open more hours? THREE HOURS A DAY just doesn’t cut it for kids and families starving for resources.

There’s such a need at GBV! The public library is such a positive place!

Here’s hoping the Worcester City Council opens the POPULAR GBV library branch for at least FIVE HOURS a day!
