Originally the domain of “the Female Benevolent and Library Society” in 1825, the Seekonk Public Library has become an indispensable fixture in southeastern Massachusetts. In addition to being part of the SAILS library network, it offers museum passes for members of Friends of the Library, book deliveries to homebound patrons, monthly family nights featuring special music and speakers, storytime hours for toddlers and pre-school-aged children, weekend movie matinees, book clubs for parents and children alike and much more. The library is also digitally equipped with an Overdrive program that lets patrons find and download both audio and electronic books for computers, e-readers and music players. Those who are looking to meet their research needs will likewise be pleased with the wealth of research materials available, on subjects ranging from health and local news to foreign language and investment.
To celebrate the bicentennial of Seekonk’s founding, the Seekonk Public Library will hold a Happy Birthday Party on April 12 for children of all ages, as well as a special Breakfast and Books function on April 14.
