Open Online Only From Monday, October 26 – Saturday, October 31 Due To Air Duct Cleaning

Abbot Public Library will be open online only from Monday, October 26th through Saturday, October 31st to allow the cleaning of our air circulation ducts to take place in the building, which is one of the two major projects we mentioned in our Message to the Marblehead Community that need to occur before we can begin offering limited collection browsing, by appointment only, inside the building. This building closure means staff will be unable to answer the phone, accept returns, or offer Curbside Service during this week.

Please note that Saturday, October 24th , from 9:30 am – Noon and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, will be the last day to pick up or return physical library items before this closure, as the library remains closed on Sundays for Curbside Service. If you would like to pick up items, please make an appointment ahead of time online or by calling 781-631-1481, Ext. 201 during Curbside Service Hours.

Saturday, October 24 until 3:00 pm will be the last day to return library materials or pick up from our Curbside Pickup Service before our week-long closure of the building to staff for air duct cleaning on October 26-31.

Since staff will not be able to be in the building during the duct cleaning, we are closing the library return bins during this time. Please return your items by 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 24th or wait until after we reopen for Curbside Pickup Service on Monday, November 2nd. There will continue to be no late fees for overdue materials.

If you need assistance during our building closure, please contact staff via email at

We appreciate your understanding and are eager to bring expanded library services to you during this unprecedented time.

In the meantime, please enjoy our free online services of ebooks, e-audiobooks, video streaming, and more by visiting our website or our eBooks, Movies, and More! blog page and clicking on the appropriate button. Take a look at our “App Map” below to find out which services offer what types of digital materials.
