Welcome to the last edition of our newsletter for 2021! The next time you receive one of these, we’ll be kicking off the new year. Read on for our remaining programs in December, and be sure to check the green box at the beginning of this newsletter for our holiday hours and closures. (Please note that our hours on the 23rd and 30th are subject to change based on Town Hall’s.) As always, you can keep up with us on a daily basis on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. See you in 2022!
Wednesday mornings at 10 am
Join us to sing songs and listen to stories. This story time will be held in the Meeting House across from the library. You are welcome to bring a blanket or chair to sit on during story time. Story time will be held this month on December 8 and 15, with a holiday break from story time the last two weeks of the month before we start again in the new year!
*Please note that indoor story time will have a capacity limit and attendees will be let inside in order of arrival (no registration). In the case of a warm day, we may decide to have story time on the common instead.
Story Time is recommended for children ages 5 and younger.
Read to a Dog
Mitzi, a trained therapy dog, will be visiting the Lynnfield Library hoping to hear some great stories! Children may sign up for a 10-minute session and choose a book or selection from a book to read to her. Mitzi is a patient listener, so reading to her is good practice for readers who are still struggling a bit as well as pros. Program geared towards children in grades K-4. Space is limited to 6 children.
When registering, please select an available time. Time to read to Mitzi is limited, so please arrive early if you need time to pick out a book. We may not be able to accept children who are late to their appointment time. If you register and can no longer attend, please email Lauren at email@example.com to cancel.
If registration is full, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the waitlist. Anyone on the waitlist will get priority for Mitzi’s next visit.
Children Grades K-4

Thank you to the Friends of the Lynnfield Library for funding this program.
Decorate the Children’s Room Door!
Wednesday, January 5 at 3 pm
The children’s room door needs some new artwork. Stop by from 3:00-4:30 to draw a picture that will be added to our door to make it beautiful!
Children of all ages are invited to participate in this event. Registration not required.
It’s time to bring back the books you’ve been holding onto throughout the pandemic! Now that the library has been fully open for several months, our library network is reinstating its long overdue policy. Once a book, DVD, CD, or other item is 42 days overdue, the item will be billed to your account and we’ll need you to return it before you can borrow books or ebooks or use museum passes again.
You can return items inside the library when we’re open or by using the outdoor book drops any time. There are no late fees for Lynnfield items–just bring them back as soon as you can! And don’t worry, we won’t judge you for how long it’s been since you’ve visited.
Reminder emails and letters have been sent out over the past several weeks, and the next time you’re at the library, we’ll let you know if we see anything on your account. You can also check your account online or call the library and we’ll tell you if you have anything overdue.
While there are no late fees for Lynnfield items, some of the other libraries in our network are charging late fees–but again, the most important thing is that you get those items back to us so we can share them with the rest of the community!
