“Look Up” movie tonight

Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen star in the last “Look Up” movie of the season, “Starman” a romantic science fiction. This seldom seen 1977 movie is an aging, but still sweet saga, of a man who falls to earth and is torn between returning to his home in the stars or staying earth-bound with the woman he loves. Old-fashioned fun with FREE POPCORN!

Remote users look for changes


The Massachusetts Library System will be discontinuing Commonwealth E-Book Collections in favor of an expanded Overdrive. Read the details here: https://libraries.state.ma.us/pages/overdrive-transition

If you are currently using Universal Class, Transparent Language, RBDigital magazines, or any EBSCO Host library services, please be aware that policy changes are happening July 1, 2018 that may require you to re-enroll in RBDigital’s services. For Universal Class, Zinio magazines, and Transparent Language you may still use the same credentials (user names and passwords) but the new app environments and database changes require signing up all over again. In the case of Transparent Language, you will be required to re-enroll and your history will be lost. We apologize for any inconvenience. On the bright side, we will be adding ACORN TV (the best of British broadcasting) and access to the different databases will be from one convenient location.
