Snow Closing Updates

How do you find out if the library is closed due to snow? We do NOT follow the school schedule, and we can't always update our website in the event of inclement weather. The best place to look for snow closing information is our Facebook page! Look there for the most up-to-date snow closing information.

Our Next Community Read Has Begun!

social justice
March 1st kicked off our next Community Read. This year, instead of asking the whole town to read the same book, we're asking everyone to read any book on the same theme: social justice. Pick a book on your own, or check one out from our recommended books display at the library!

But don't stop at just reading—write a short book review and hand it in at the main desk, and the Friends of the Topsfield Library will donate $10 to the Top Cupboard Food Pantry! Orange book review slips may be picked up on the Community Read display by the front desk of the library.

We have book discussions and events planned throughout the month. See the full list here.
