A big thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate our Centennial Summer!

We know the library looks a little different every time you come in. We are continuing to build our Teen Zone, revitalize our children’s collection, create more display space, organize our History Reading Room and provide services that help Ashfield folks of all ages. We appreciate your patience and your feedback as the library evolves!

Do your homework at the Library!
Good luck to all the young people in the community who are going back to school this month.
Remember the library has space for you to settle in and do your homework. The library also provides resources to help with papers, projects and book reports as well as free wi-fi access for electronic research. Come in and ask how you can download books and magazine articles you need.
