Building Re-Opening Information

The Medfield Public Library is excited to announce that we will be re-opening the Lower Level of the library and adding additional hours on June 14! Due to maintenance upstairs, the children’s area is not yet open, but we will continue to display hundreds of children’s books on the main floor, and our knowledgeable children’s librarians will always be available to help you find whatever you need. We will open the children’s area as soon as we can, and will keep you posted on our plans. We will also continue to offer a hold pickup option four days a week. For any and all questions, we will be available by phone Monday – Thursday, 10 am – 6 pm and Friday – Saturday, 10 am – 2 pm or email
