Library / Library Trustees

The Goshen Free Public Library, located in the John James Memorial Town Hall, at 42 Main Street (Route 9), serves area residents by providing books, DVDs, audiobooks, music CDs, magazines, high-speed Internet and computers for public use, WiFi, Interlibrary Loan (ILL), and a printer/scanner/copier (nominal cost).

In addition, the Library provides summer reading programs for school-age children, and special programs, such as visits by your political representatives for information and discussion.

Access to the Library via the front entry to Town Hall is temporarily closed, awaiting repairs to the building. The Library is on the second floor. Please use the side entrances. Library hours are posted on those doors. For handicapped access, use the ramp leading to the side door toward the back of the town hall, go cross the stage, and use the elevator to go up one floor (press "L" for Library). Turn right off the elevator. The library is the first door on your left.

To return library books, DVDs, etc., at any time, there is a weatherproof box on the porch of the Town Offices building, 40 Main Street, which is also wheelchair-accessible. There is one slot for books and another slot for fragile materials (i.e., DVDs).

The Board of Trustees holds a meeting usually once a month. The meetings are open to the public and must follow Massachusetts Open Meeting Law. To find out the date, time and location of the next meeting of the Board of Trustees, please call (413) 268-9444 (Rosemarie Clark, Trustee Secretary).
