Announcing the Tween Room

Brookline Village
Starting in 2019, the Brookline Village Library will have a new Tween Room and collection to offer our patrons in grades 5-7. Starting in January, the Commons will be reserved for our tween patrons from 2-6 PM, Monday through Friday. They’ll have access to robust fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novel collections, as well as weekly programming designed just for them.

Over the next few weeks, the Commons will be closed on certain days in order to redecorate with new paint, carpet, and furniture. The Commons will be closed on the following days:

Sunday, December 16 from 1-5 PM
Wednesday, December 19 from 2-9 PM
Thursday, December 20 from 2-9 PM

Become a Volunteer English Tutor

Looking for a rewarding way to connect with the community? Become a volunteer English tutor at the Public Library of Brookline. You’ll be paired with an adult English language learner and meet weekly to help them improve their English. No teaching or tutoring experience is required, and all tutors will receive training from Library staff.

Interested in becoming a tutor? Ask a librarian for a sign-up form at any Public Library of Brookline location.
