Update on the Saugus Library

   July 7th, 2007

Saugus Public LibraryAs of July 1st, 2007, the Saugus Library has reopened, albeit with limited hours.

They are still short when it comes to the budget, but between donations, dedication and volunteers, the library is managing to provide some core services to its community. Congratulations Mary Rose Quinn (Library Director) and the rest of the staff.

A recent Boston Globe article details the situation pretty well - what caused it, what things are like now, and a few possibilities (including intervention from the state government).

In the meantime, since the library's closure, the Saugus library has unfortunately been decertified, which means Saugus residents can't borrow materials from other Massachusetts libraries.
