Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Roxbury Public Library is continuing to monitor information about the coronavirus (COVID-19).

As local schools remain closed and current recommendations stress the importance of social distancing, the Library has decided to close to the public. We hope to reopen as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

The Library has a large collection of downloadable books and audiobooks which you can access from home for free with your library card. At the front of the library there is also a cart of books and movies from the Next Chapter Bookstore that our patrons are welcome to borrow from.
