What's New

Pop in and take a look at our new collection of four popular strategy games available to borrow:  Risk, Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Ticket to Ride: Europe 

The games are shelved in our Teen Area, on a shelf above the YA Fiction section.  Grab an empty game box and bring it with your library card to the Main Floor Circulation Desk.  Similar to our children's Funbrary collection, these games can be borrowed for up to one month. 

Try one out--you'll be sure to have a blast!

Come to the Middleborough Town Hall for a special program to honor Black History Month when the Bright Star Touring Theatre will present, "Black History Soldiers, Sailors, and Spies" on Saturday, February 11th from 1-2 p.m.  You'll have the opportunity to experience, celebrate and learn about forgotten heroes and soldiers of Black History. See the work of the Buffalo Soldiers and Colonel Charles Young as they help settle the American West and some of our first national parks; join the Tuskegee Airmen as they take flight to help win a battle in World War II; and learn about the work of spies such as Mary Elizabeth Bowser who worked with the Union during the Civil War.

Open to all ages, and registration will NOT be required.  

 This program is supported in part by a grant from the Middleborough Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Support also was provided by the Friends of the Middleborough Public Library.

Have you ever wanted to find out what playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) is all about without having to buy it?  Here's your chance!
 
You can now borrow one of two role-playing sets for up to two months, giving you plenty of time to learn the rules of the game and complete an adventure.
 
The D&D Starter Set is perfect for beginners aged 12+, offering five pre-generated characters, rulebook, four sets of dice, and a full-fledged adventure that's been crafted for you.  Great for 3-5 players.
 
For those who are familiar with the game but want more freedom to create your own characters and adventure, the D&D Essentials Kit provides everything you need to know to get started, including an introductory adventure, Dungeon Master's screen, map, four sets of dice, and 81 cards for magic items and sidekicks. Ideal for 2-6 players aged 12+.
 
Stop by our Main Floor Desk to ask about our kits or take one home using your library card.
 
 
These kits are made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
