Pittsfield Library Closure
The Pittsfield library will be closed beginning Monday, September 23. The closure is scheduled to last 6-8 weeks. We will update when a re-opening date is announced.
The library will probably still be closed on election day (November 5). It WILL open just as a polling place for that day.
Pittsfield Library Renovation Plan
As part of the renovation they will be adding new kids game computers and new public computers.
They are adding 3 new bookable meeting rooms. One of the rooms will accommodate 35 people with a screen for presentations.
I visited the library on Saturday. I am hopeful that the ball popper will remain. My daughter loved it for years.

- Baby Playgroup:
- Wednesday at 11a: Cancelled.

The book lockers for reserved books will not be used during the closure.
Requested items will be sent to the Westgate Branch while Pittsfield is closed. If you want to pickup at a different location, it depends on whether you make the change before or after the item becomes available.
