You can also watch a recording of the Town of Brookline's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration on the Town's website.

Resuming Contactless Pickup

Starting Tuesday, January 18, the Library will be moving back to a contactless pickup service model. At this time, we plan to offer these limited services for two weeks, and then re-evaluate. During this time, you'll still be able to request and pick up materials (including book bundles for adults and kids of all ages!), participate in virtual programs, and much more. For full details on our services in the coming weeks, please see our latest Letter from the Library Director.

THURSDAY, January 20 at 7 PM

Join us for a fun night of virtual family bingo! Each bingo winner will win an amazing prize, so don’t miss out! This program is for all ages and will be hosted on Zoom.

Click here to register for the Zoom link!

Some important details for this event: You will need TWO DEVICES in order to enjoy the optimal experience – a computer/smart phone (to join the program on Zoom) and a smart phone or tablet (to play the game). If you’re playing with multiple people in the same household, only one person needs to register for and open the Zoom call. The remaining players can play the game from other devices (one per person). You can also play as one team, in which case you’d only need one other device.

This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Public Library.
