December 2017 Director’s Message:

In the spirit of the holiday season we have a couple of small gifts for you. First, between now and December 31 we’ve raised the number of DVDs that you can check out from 5 to 10. So if you’d like to binge watch one of our series collections you can not only take home the full set, but add a stand-alone film or two to go with it.

We’ve also decided to change the loan period for new books that are over 400 pages long from 2 weeks to 4 weeks. Just look for the “Four Week Loan!” sticker placed above the “new” label on the spine (that change is permanent).

As 2017 draws to a close we’d like to thank you for all you do to support the Essex Library. We know you appreciate our efforts to provide you with outstanding service but we’re equally grateful that we get to serve such a wonderful community. On behalf of the Library’s staff and myself we hope you all enjoy very happy and safe holidays!
