Strategic Plan

A Message from the Director


A new chapter in the history of Abbot Public Library is in progress. The library renovation project started in January 2023 and is expected to be complete in Spring 2024.  The work will include the replacement of aging mechanical systems and an update to interior space. The improvements will give us an edge in meeting the demands and expectations of today’s library users. We will be equipped to grow with the community offering a high standard of service in the years ahead.

During the renovation, we will be temporarily housed at the Eveleth School at 3 Brook Road in Marblehead.  At this location, you can check out a book, reserve a book, attend a program or stop by for some quiet reading time.

Abbot Public Library serves as an oasis for the Marblehead community. Whether you visit us in person or online, you can be assured of free access to accurate and reliable information.

I hope you’ll visit us soon to update your library card, attend a program, or ask for a reading or research recommendation.
