Library Closing Information

Last Updated: March 26th, 2020

The Library is closed.

The book drops will be open, but we heartily encourage you to keep your books while we’re closed. To help that, all due dates have been extended through April 30, and, if you have something on hold but weren’t able to pick it up before the 24th, they will be held until we open again.

We will still be available via email (, as well as through our Comment/Question form on our website. If you do need to call us, when you use our 978-686-4080 please enter extension 10 and leave a voicemail. If you’d like to know if someone is in the building, use the number 978-722-2666 (there is no option to leave a message at this number).

No matter the way you get in touch with us though, we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Make sure that you’re following our social media channels as well. We’ll have things that you can do, maybe some random fun stuff, as well as updates when we get them.

While our physical building may be closed, if you have a Methuen Library card there are many things that you can still access through our website. The website is also the best place to get information on our library’s status and any other important information we need to release.

We have a wide variety of Online Databases that can be accessed here. With the Libby App, eBooks and Magazines can be read, and eAudiobooks listened to on any device. And there are thousands! (You can also do it on your computer if you don’t have a cell phone or tablet). We even have some new (temporary) online resources that companies like Proquest and Gale Cengage have made available for free to everyone, whether or not they have a library card.

If you’re looking for help with upper level school work, we have Gale Databses. We also have the Britannica Encyclopedia online as well.

Looking for something different to do, we have Mango Languages where you can start learning a new language. Or if you just want to listen to some music and relax, you can use Freegal to find your inner zen.

We also have databases and other digital resources specifically for children. From eBooks to many kid focused Databases. Exploring STEM to finding a bunch of new books you want to read next.
