WITH THE RAPIDLY CHANGING CHALLENGES BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE THREAT OF THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS, WE ARE TAKING PRECAUTIONARY ACTIONS TO MITIGATE EXPOSURE AND REDUCE THE IMPACT OF THE CORONAVIRUS ON OUR PATRONS, VOLUNTEERS, STAFF AND COMMUNITY; THEREFORE, THE LIBRARY WILL BE TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS TO BE CONTINUED – MAY THROUGH OCTOBER 2020, FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH AT 7PM
This series offers opportunities to meet and get to know several of your neighbors at the library. Some are well known beyond Essex, others not so much, but each has made a mark in some profession or field of endeavor as an entrepreneur, artist, public servant or volunteer. We believe their presence among us has contributed to the quality of life of our town and enriched our lives. They will talk about the interests and motivations that inspire their lives, the specific activity or activities that have absorbed their energies and how Essex has inspired or shaped these activities.
These events are a fundraiser for the library with a suggested donation of $5.00 (children free).

COME VISIT US
Our library renovations are complete, and the upstairs children's room, reading room and our new deck are now open for use. These exciting changes are thanks to those of you who told us how important your library is by donating generously to our capital campaign. Those donations were the seed money that allowed us to apply for grant funds from the State.
The new Children's Room is finished! Come visit and enjoy the Lego table, doll house, play kitchen, craft area, toys, and most importantly - BOOKS!
Our new Reading Room is done as well, and you are welcome to come enjoy the beautiful lake view while you read, relax, use our wireless Internet connection, or just sit and spend time with friends.
