LEFT TURN into Patty Lane from Main Street westbound is now ALLOWED. Turn BEFORE the island and utility pole.
Please use caution!
Exiting traffic please stay to FAR RIGHT for all turns, including left turn. New lines will be painted soon.
Our lot access is via Patty Lane.
Rt. 20 construction has made it difficult to see the library parking sign on the corner of Main St. (Rt. 20) and Patty Lane. Patty Lane is right across from the Gulf station. Whether you're coming from out of town, or just not sure where to park, follow Patty Lane to the library parking lot.
The red brick building next to the library has a tempting driveway, being right next to the library, but it is private property. Additional parking for the lilbrary is available on the corner of Hudson and Pierce, or at Town Hall.
Using the New Catalog
Your library card account allows you to renew, place holds, and check due dates online. Library staff can still do these for you, if you prefer.
Make sure you're in the new Evergreen catalog (see below*).
Type your library card number into the first box. If it begins with "D” you must capitalize it.
Type your password into the second box.
For library cards created before June 1, 2012: Your password is your LAST NAME all in CAPS. You can change your password on your second login.
For library cards created after June 1, 2012: Your password is the last 4 digits of your phone number.
If you can't get in, try typing your data again. If that doesn't work, call the library, 508-393-5025 x.6. We may need to update your account.
WAITING FOR HOLDS? If you have been waiting for a hold, you might want to check your record or contact us to see if it has come in.
*CHANGE YOUR BOOKMARKS OR FAVORITES! Please access our catalog through the library website. We have learned that some patrons are clicking on an old URL (website) which is no longer accurate. The new catalog displays in green. The old catalog is blue and still displays, but is no longer functional. Our new URL is https://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home?loc=83 if you want to add this to any list you maintain.
Please be patient with the new system, and with us! C/W MARS staff are still working to streamline Evergreen.
