Second Writers Group Formed
Author Amy Rachiele, facilitator
By public demand, a second Writers Group is being organized at the Uxbridge Free Public Library! Author Amy Rachiele has generously volunteered to facilitate the group who will hold their first meeting on Friday, June 28th from 2-4pm. We are trying to keep the number of participants limited so be sure to sign up early!
Library Auditorium Repairs
Top floor to be closed to the public
The Library's auditorium on the top floor is currently undergoing much-needed repairs. Over the next week or so the entire top floor will be inaccessible as the renovations progress. Obviously this will impact those doing research for genealogy and local history purposes. We will be unable to help with research questions involving those collections until late June and apologize for any inconvenience.

Users must read and sign an Uxbridge Free Public Library Laptop Computer Use Policy;
"Loans" are on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance;
Laptops must be checked out at the circulation desk, and must be returned to the desk at least 15 minutes before the Library closes;
Laptops are to be used only for job-related activities such as job seeking, applying for jobs online, vocational test taking, writing research papersand creating resumes and cover letters. Any other use will result in privileges being revoked.
All laptops are wireless and equipped with MS Office software. Users may use a thumb drive or other similar device to save their work for later printing. The Library currently does not have a networked printer. For more information, call the Library at 508-278-8624.
