The library staff has been recording informational videos, craft tutorials, and story times to share with patrons online during this time when we can't be together in person. As of this writing, there are nine original videos on the library's YouTube channel.

“We are excited about this new way to offer services to our community,” said Athol Library Director Jean Shaughnessy "Staff have been brainstorming ideas for new additions to our YouTube channel and gaining the skills necessary to create the videos. We're also really appreciative that AOTV has offered to air some of the videos, which will help us reach community members who do not have internet at home."

Although the Athol Public Library is currently closed to the public until further notice due to COVID-19 precautions, its resources are available online 24/7. Readers are encouraged to visit the library website at to learn about other resources that are available from anywhere with an internet connection.

There is a button to take patrons to our YouTube channel on the sidebar of our homepage undearneath the news items section.
