Here are some snaps of the West Bridgewater Public Library in Massachusetts, USA

It’s a small library with a big heart.

The library tries to bring unusual experiences to our patrons and provide a safe, welcoming place to all.

The library includes the patrons in the programming. Letting the young become story time readers.

The West Bridgewater Public Library also has a Makerspace.

This library really is a makerspace for all kinds of making. Here volunteers are sewing dresses for vulnerable girls on the streets of the world.

Going to the library has always meant being able to get a different look at the world thorugh books, newspapers and other media. Now you also have the oppotunity to look at the world through Virtual Reality.

Theres is something for everyone at the West Bridgewater Public Library. This is the outdoor water play environment for the youngest.

“With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one – but no one at all – can tell you what to read and when and how.”

–Doris Lessing
