NEW! Local History Resource

The Everett Public Libraries are excited to announce a new digital resource for those looking to learn more about the city’s past. Using Advantage Preservation, we have created an online Community History Archive that allows users to browse, search, and download past editions (from 1940-1959) of two local papers, the Everett Leader-Herald and the Everett News-Gazette.

Upcoming Internet Outage at the Parlin Memorial Library

Comcast has alerted us that work is scheduled in the area of the Parlin Memorial Library starting on January 19th.

The work is intended to enhance upload and download speeds for Comcast Business customers, including the Parlin Memorial Library as a member of the North of Boston Library Exchange. It will result in some internet outages. More specific information has not been made available, and the plan is subject to change.

Residents who need to use the internet on January 19th may go to the Shute Memorial Library, open 11 AM to 7 PM on Thursdays. We will inform residents of any updates that may come. Thank you for your consideration, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
