Welcome to the next chapter at Paige Memorial Library!

As of July 1, 2021 the Paige Memorial Library will be a member of the

CWMars Interlibrary loan system

MassCat has treated us well; but wanting to offer our Patrons the best service possible, we are moving to CWMars starting July 1.

Those of you who already have a CWMars card from another library will use that card. Yes, Paige will be automatically registered as your home library and will get credit for your check-outs.

Those of you who need a CWMars card will get a new number and a new card the first time you check books out at the Paige.

We do not know yet if, as we change over, there may be some days when we cannot transact check-outs on our automated system . On those days we may be able to hand write the transactions. More about that on a later post.

Want to learn more about what you can expect from CWMars?

Paige Library is now Open for Browsing

Appointments are not necessary to browse.

Patrons must still wear a mask, hand sanitize, and maintain social distancing.

The number of people allowed inside the library at one time will be limited.

Toys are not available in the children’s area and Story Hour is held outdoors weather permitting.

Curbside service is still offered.
