The Library is Open, Come On In

The Malden Public Library is open in-person, curbside, and online!  All the remaining public floors are open for browsing which includes: Main Reading Room, Children’s Room, Teen Room, World Language & ESL Collection, Reference and Information Services, 2nd floor “Quiet” Study Room, Converse Local History Room (by appointment only)

No appointments are necessary to use the library and library users will have access to most library services.

Still closed:  Maccario large public meeting room and our first floor small study rooms

Throughout the summer, programs for all ages will be available outdoors, and the Summer Reading Program will kick off on July 1.

Curbside Delivery & First Floor Browsing

For those that still require special services, we will continue to have expanded browsing on the first floor – including a children’s and teen collection.  Curbside delivery will continue to be available by appointment, please call the Library to request a curbside pickup.

Computer Use

Computers are available for 1 hour due to demand. Two 20-minute computers are available for checking email and printing.  Children’s room computers re not available at this time.  Remote or curbside printing will no longer be available, but printing will be available in-person at the library.

Children’s Room

We request that families not linger for long amounts of time in the room and that young children are accompanied by an adult and that we reserve the right to limit the number of families in the room should it become too crowded for peace of mind.  Large groups wishing to visit the children’s space will be limited.  Any camp, or other organization that wants to bring a group of children to visit the library must contact the library and speak with the children’s staff in advance.

Mask Policy

While social distance restrictions have been lifted, it is important that the library is a safe space for everyone. Young children and their families are daily visitors at our library. Because most children are not yet eligible to be vaccinated, we SUGGEST that ALL patrons continue to wear masks when inside the library regardless of your vaccination status.  For unvaccinated people, the CDC still recommends masks in any indoor setting and in group settings where social distancing is not possible.

 

Magic by Scott Jameson – Wednesday, August 4, 7:00pm

Don’t miss the show that audiences are calling “Superb!,” “A blast!,” and “Heartwarming fun for the whole family!”  Join us on the front lawn of the library on Wednesday, August 4 at 7:00pm to see magician and juggler Scott Jameson in an extraordinary performance that will have you laughing out loud and perched on the very edge of your seat! (Or perhaps we should say blanket, since we will be on the front lawn and therefore suggest that families bring a blanket on which to sit on the grass.)

This show is appropriate for children aged 4-11.

This program is supported by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

Pop-Up Book Sale Saturday August 7th

Join us on the front lawn (36 Salem St) on Saturday, August 7th from 11 am to 2 pm for a mini book sale, held by the Friends of the Malden Public Library.  Fiction (both adult and young adult) and children’s books will be available, along with DVDs.

After a little shopping at the library, head down to Pleasant St for the City’s Summer Festival.

We look forward to seeing you at our mini outdoor book sale and out and about in the City.

New StoryWalk® – Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown

Our new StoryWalk® for July features the imaginative picture book Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. You are invited to walk around the library building and enjoy this fun story on the following dates (weather permitting, of course–precipitation and winds of 13+ mph can be a challenge):
Friday, July 16:  10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Monday-Tuesday, July 19-20:  depending on thunderstorm threat, perhaps just in the morning
Thursday, July 22:  10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
More dates to come!
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children—and adults!—to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll along the walkway, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and was developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
