Fitchburg and Taunton Law Libraries to close

The Massachusetts Trial Court announced today that the law libraries in Fitchburg and Taunton will cease operations effective May 10, 2013. According to the press release, the closures are "a result of low utilization, outdated facilities and staff reductions."

While the two libraries will close on May 10, they will stop circulating materials on April 19, 2013. Borrowers who have a library card from either of the libraries will continue to be able to use it at any of the other fifteen libraries, and their remote access to online databases will be unaffected.
