Please view our “While We Are Closed” page for more information about our closure, and for many resources that could help you during this difficult time. 

Here is what is still available from your library:

  • The library is only partially staffed. Some of our staff are still working from home. Please call us at 413-665-2642 or email us at to receive library services.
  • Our digital collections are available 24/7. 
  • Wireless Internet is available in the library’s parking lot and backyard between 9 AM – 8 PM seven days per week. 
  • Technology help is available by appointment, and can be provided by email, phone, or video conferencing.
  • You can return library materials, if you want. Our book drop is still open for returns. 
  • We are open for 30 minute computer appointments. Please contact us to schedule one today.
  • We are open for 30 minute browsing appointments on Tuesdays from 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Please contact us to schedule one today.
  • Interlibrary loan has resumed, meaning you can order items from other libraries to be picked up in Sunderland. 

This is what is temporarily unavailable:

  • All programs and meetings that were scheduled to take place in the library are cancelled.

We appreciate your patience and support as we discover the safest way to provide services under these new circumstances. 

Resource Lists: We are gathering resources to help our patrons handle the COVID-19 crisis. Please view these lists, and contact us for assistance using any of the included resources.

Information about COVID-19: A lot of information and misinformation about COVID-19, also  known as Corona Virus, is available to the public. For the most accurate and up-to-date information about the virus, please visit the Center for Disease Control Website and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts website

Library staff and facility cleaners are also taking steps to protect our patrons from this disease and all other diseases. Please reach out to our Library Director if you  have any questions or concerns. Currently we have a regular cleaning schedule, and we quarantine all incoming and returned library materials for three days before we clean them and return them to our shelves or check them out to the next patron.

Board of Library Trustees: The Board of Library Trustees will be hosting meetings virtually for the foreseeable future, using the platform Zoom. Please see the Board of Library Trustees page for information on upcoming meetings and how to join.
