Library to Go logo

(updated September 9, 2020)

Worcester County Library branches are providing safe access to physical materials through a limited pickup service called “Library-To-Go.”  You may contact your library at least 24 hours before you want to pick up materials and request up to 20 books, DVDs (Limit of 5), and audiobooks at a time.  We will schedule a time for you to pick up materials in a safe, no-contact, environment.

 

How it Works:

Library begins “Grab and Go” Service; Shifts to 48-hour Quarantine for Returned Material

Beginning Monday, November 16, all five library branches will trial “Grab and Go” service. Appointments to browse the library collection will be available from 1 – 4 pm Monday – Friday and 10 – 12 noon on Saturdays. Call your library branch to make a reservation. All visitors will be asked to wear a mask, sign a screening form, and use hand sanitizer upon entry. The library is also asking visitors to refrain from reshelving items.

BrainHQ

BrainHQ has 29 online exercises that work out attention, brain speed, memory, people skills, navigation, and intelligence.  If you want, you can have BrainHQ tell you exactly which exercises to do, and in which order: the personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continually measures your performance and serves up the exercises that are right for you.  Or if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your personal interests, mood, and schedule.

Back To School Resources For Learning At Home

As families prepare to start the school year in a unique way, the library has resources to support learning for all ages.

In addition to our virtual Summer Reading program, we are offering "programs-to-go" for children. A limited supply of kits will be available each week at our branches for contactless pick up. This week we are offering writing kits which fits perfectly with this year's Summer Reading theme, "Imagine Your Story." Included is a blank book, some lined paper, pencils, crayons, and some fun writing prompts to kick start the imagination. Call your branch to schedule a pick up time.  Future kit themes will posted to our social media sites.
