This is NOT an official website of either the Southwick Public Library or the Town of Southwick. The purpose of this site is to share information on the resources and activities of the Library. This site was created and is maintained without public funds or Town staff.
The Library information can be accessed by going to the Town website and click on Library or click here.
This site includes information on upcoming events, the catalog of books and other items in the Library collection, hours of operation, etc. Due to the limited staffing of the Town this website was started to supplement information on the Library with frequent changes during the month (as needed).
