Last summer, thanks to a grant from the Medford Arts Council and the Friends of the Medford Public Library, art historian Erin Halvey photographed and researched art objects in city buildings.

We have recently consolidated most of our language learning materials to make them easier to locate. All of our ESL books, CD's, and DVD's are now located on the left side of the Periodicals area.

Foreign language learning books can be found in the stacks in the 400's. And don't forget our online Rocket Languages service (see the link on the right hand side of this page!)
