Libraries & Literacy - E

Educating the public for 21st century literacy

The library is keeping instep with technological advances.  Now patrons can request an item or renew a book online from anywhere.  The Friends recently purchased new computers and updated educational software for the children’s department.

If audiobooks are your passion, downloadable mp3 books are available from any computer at Yes, you can now checkout and download an audiobook from home.

For those residents who do not have internet access, the library provides terminals for research or assessing e-mail.  If you don’t know how to use the internet or the computer, the library offers computer classes by request.  Stop by the reference desk to schedule a class.  The library will continue being an indispensable resource for the future, providing additional computer training, CD-Roms and educational software for the residents of Roxbury.
