Dear Library Lovers,
By Executive Order, the Burnham Library will be closed until further notice. Curbside delivery service will remain for the time being. Curbside delivery is for Bridgewater residents, by scheduled appointment only on Monday – Saturday from 9:00 – 12:00. We will continue to monitor development and reassess the situation and hope to reopen as soon as we can!
During this time all on-site programming and meeting space room reservations are canceled.
Our staff will continue to be available during library hours via email and social media. Any phone calls will be answered by chance, Monday – Friday from 9:00 – 12:00.
