Your Key To The Entire World

The Ashland Public Library Board of Trustees will be conducting their next board meeting in the Stockwell Room of the Library on September 8, 2022, at 4:30pm. The Ashland Fire Marshal assessed the capacity of the Stockwell Room to be 49 people. Spaces will be reserved for the Board of Trustees and those on the agenda to speak. All other available spaces will be on a first come first served basis.
Due to safety concerns, attendees will not be permitted to stand in the hallway, block any exits, or obstruct the flow of traffic . In order to be equitable, anyone wishing to attend the meeting may line up outside the back door of the building. The meeting room doors will open at 4:15pm. These guidelines have been instituted to ensure the safety of our patrons, staff, and those attending the meeting. We apologize for any inconvenience.

At the Ashland Public Library, you’ll find a wealth of books, eBooks, audiobooks, and more. Please feel free to explore our online catalog, check out our upcoming events, or read more about the services we provide.
