Assiginack Library Events and Information

We are open and ready for the summer!  We are even having a party to celebrate our 75th birthday.
This event will take place on July 22nd at 7 pm at the library (in the municipal bldg on Spragge St.)

Did you know that the Library has Overdrive? It is the perfect way to check out books from home so you can take them with you on holidays, without actually taking the book out!
OverDrive is a shared collection of e-books and audio books available from the Library. Our Library has paid the membership fee to be part of this consortium.  Members of the Library just need to come in and get their membership number and the instructions for downloading and accessing this special collection.
