Summer Reading Roundup

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Adult, Teen, and Children's Summer Reading Clubs.  The results were spectacular.  We had 56 adults who read 386 books, 101 teens who read 547 books, and 206 children who blew the top of the reading thermometer with a whopping 1613 books!!  Thank you to our local sponsors CB Scoops and Bestsellers Cafe who were incredibly generous with their support.

City Art Inventory

Click here to visit a new online exhibit of art objects owned by the City of Medford. 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. The result of her work was transferred to an online exhibit sponsored by Biblioboard Library.

Language Learning

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.  All of our foreign language learning CD sets, our deposit collections of books in foreign languages, and our Italian language materials are also now in this 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!)

Board Game Night

If you’re an adult who hasn’t given up on having fun, join us at Medford Library for some geektastic board gaming. You can bring a friend or come by yourself, bring a favorite board game or see what we have to offer.  Make sure to bring along your incorrigible sense of fun and adventure.  We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6-9PM: February 5 & 19, March 5 & 19.

New Flag Pole!

In October of 2013, the Library’s flag pole snapped in half during Hurricane Sandy.  We weren’t sure how to fund a replacement, but during the spring we had good news—Eagle Scout candidate Joseph Feeney had adopted the project. During the summer and fall,  Joseph raised money to replace the pole, and in mid-October the new pole went up with the help of the Medford DPW.  We would like to thank Joseph and his family for their efforts and the great result!
