Library Closing Notification
As a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Southborough Library is temporarily closing to the public until further notice.
Visit and Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on social media.
Sign up for a "Quarantine Card" for access
During the building closure, residents who do not have a library card cannot access digital resources via our Reference Databases page. If you don't have a library card, don't worry! You can now sign up for a limited edition "Quarantine Card" online by filling out this form.
Please do not fill out the form if you have an existing library card card account. Q-Cards will expire in mid-July 2020. For continued access, patrons will need to come to the library when the building reopens to verify their address information. Upon successful completion of the form, cards will be mailed directly to patrons at home. Questions? E-mail Library Director Ryan Donovan.
Library Seed Exchange - Order Yours Today!
The Southborough Library Seed Exchange was originally set to open on March 19, 2020. Due to the closure of the library due to the current pandemic, the Library Seed Exchange has been converted into a mail order service. Library staff have been inspired by the Victory Gardens of WWII.
Want to know how to get started? Fill out the form by clicking here or by clicking bit.ly/sblibseeds. Patrons can order up to 10 varieties of seeds offered by the exchange. The library will then mail them right to your house! Thank you to The Friends of the Southborough Library for providing funds for the seeds and for postage to mail them out to residents.
