Updates Thumbnail


We no longer will collect fines if your book is overdue. We believe that you will return it. Don't have a library card? Call us and we'll fill out all necessary info and you can pick it up, or come in.

Volunteers Thumbnail


We are entirely staffed by volunteers. Please ask how to join us! We ask for a 2 hour/week time commitment and we will train you during your first shift – no experience necessary.

Library Cards Thumbnail

Library Cards

Cards are easily obtained with photo identification. Newton residence is not required. Ten books for three weeks; ten cents per day overdue. All overdue fees are used to support the library. If you want to renew a book, please bring the book into the library or give us a call and we will be happy to help you on the phone!
