Voting Ends November 4th!


To cultivate a love of reading and to promote a sense of community, the Reuben Hoar Library is organizing its third "Littleton Reads: One Book, One Town" community reading project.

Everyone in Littleton will be invited to read the same book at the same time. The Library will create a series of programs and events based on the theme of the chosen book, including a possible visit by the author! Communities all over the country sponsor similar programs and find it to be a way for people of all ages to come together to share thoughts, friendship and a lively exchange of ideas.

We first need to choose that one important book that everyone will read.

What book would you choose for a Community Read?

Vote for your favorite book from a list of thoughtfully chosen titles or suggest a different book. Keep in mind, the ideal book will be one with general appeal, and is appropriate for teenagers and older.

Voting will be open throughout the summer and fall. On Election Day in November, votes will be tallied and the book with the most votes will become our next Community Read.

 The library will be closed November 11th for Veteran's Day.

The 5th Annual Reuben Hoar Library Fund Drive is in full swing!

Help us to reach our goal by donating today!

In 2010, the Reuben Hoar Library Board of Trustees established the Reuben Hoar Library Fund.  The purpose of this fund is to help defray the cost of a new or renovated/expanded library to Littleton taxpayers as well as to fund current service and building improvements that may not be covered by the annual town-appropriated operating budget.


Massachusetts Virtual Catalog

Can't find what you're looking for in the MVLC online catalog or the Virtual Catalog? Here's why...

The Virtual Catalog has been the place for finding library materials in Massachusetts libraries. But now, after more than 10 years, it is time for a new system. The Massachusetts state-wide interlibrary loan system, currently known as the Virtual Catalog, will be migrating to a new system and getting a new name, the Commonwealth Catalog.

Over the course of the coming months, all library networks will be migrating from the Virtual to the Commonwealth Catalog. This migration process will be done incrementally and include a gradual draw down of the items listed in the Virtual Catalog as networks are migrated, one-by-one to the new system.

When a network is removed from the Virtual Catalog their libraries will cease borrowing and lending and their items will cease to show in Virtual Catalog searches. Until this migration is complete, you may have to ask a librarian to assist you in finding the item for which you are searching.

We apologize for this inconvenience but a better searching experience is on the way as the go-live date for the new Commonweath Catalog approaches.
