Reading Public Library

80 General Way
Reading, MA 01867


The Reading Public Library offers a wide variety of services to meet the educational and recreational needs of children, young adults, and those who work with them. Unlike a school library, the Reading Public Library does not attempt to collect curriculum-related materials unless those materials are of interest to the general public. Rather, the Reading Public Library seeks to complement the materials offered in a school library. Teachers who wish to enhance their students' access to library materials are encouraged to take advantage of the special borrowing privileges offered to them.

Only materials for use in the classroom or in support of the classroom are eligible to be checked out on a teacher card. As a professional courtesy, teachers are requested to notify a children's librarian or a reference librarian if they wish to take more than three books on any one topic. This will ensure that sufficient materials are left for the general public
