Construction on Front Entryway

Begins Monday, May 15

Thanks to a generous grant from the Mass Cultural Council, the library will have a new portico constructed at the front entry of the library. Construction begins on May 15, and will continue for approximately six weeks. The library will be fully operational during construction. However, the front entrance to the library will not be accessible. Patrons and visitors must use the side entrance by South Congregational Church. This entrance is fully accessible and offers handicap parking spots and an elevator for easy access to the lower level community rooms and bookstore.


Born to Read: Storytime for You and Your Baby

Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m.

Early literacy begins at birth!  Babies form brain connections-- determining how they learn, think and grow-- from the very moment they are born.  Reading aloud to infants strengthens and develops their brain cells.  Join us for a gentle circle time of stories, snuggles, fun and connection.

Drop-in.  This weekly program takes place in the Children's Room.

Artists of the Month: Darby Hobbs & Karen Kishibay

June 2023

Darby Hobbs’ passion is to create positive change in our world through ‘Story Art.’ As a producer of children’s books, Darby focuses key messages on how to make the world a better place. The stories produced speak of love, peace, acceptance, hope, kindness, inclusion and so much more. Her newest book is titled Color the World in Love.


Karen Kishibay’s illustrations in children’s books are done by using waters colors, pen and ink and each artwork is an individual painting. She graduated college summa cum laude with a BFA and minor in graphic design. Karen is an accomplished designer, painter, watercolorist, oil and acrylic medium painter, ceramics, print production, logo designer and illustrator. She complements the words her sister Darby writes - making the stories true adventures of the heart.


Items will be on display and for sale in the front lobby for the month of June.  A portion of sales will support Centerville Public Library.
