Library Board of Trustees

Manages the town’s public library.

Active Notices

The library is closed until further notice. Along with the State’s increased efforts to slow the spread of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Montgomery Town Library decided to close its doors on March 16th.


Digital Resources
While we are closed, we encourage patrons to use our digital resources: Overdrive/Libby for e-books and audio books, and Kanopy for streaming movies (requires library card barcode).

Materials on hold?
If you have received a message that your materials holds are “ready for pick up” during our closure, please expect to find them on the hold shelf 2-3 days following our re-opening.

For those materials currently on the hold shelf, they will remain on the shelf for one week following reopening to give you chance to come in to check them out.

Though we are closed, you can still place materials on hold and we will begin fulfilling requests once we re-open to the public.

Checked-Out Books
Books previously checked out before our closing will be automatically renewed until May 1st, 2020.

Stay safe and healthy, we look forward to reopening and making our materials available once again to all our patrons. Please understand that we must take into consideration our community, our volunteers and our staff’s health and safety. We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
