Wareham Free Library will close for renovations in October

Sep 10, 2023

The Wareham Free Library will undergo renovations throughout the month of October to recarpet and repair water damage from the flood in March, according to Library Director Patrick Marshall.

According to Marshall, a pipe burst in the Library at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 5, flooding the meeting room and the hallway around the circulation area.

The burst was caused by a water main break on Morris Avenue.

Services will be offered in a limited capacity at the Spinney Memorial Branch located at 259 Onset Avenue.

Marshall said the library will be recarpeted at the start of October. 

He said he anticipates the work to be completed within two to three weeks barring any complications.

Although hours will be limited at the Spinney location, Marshall said, “We are trying to provide as much library service during the craziness as possible.”

He added he will know more about the plans for library services in October later on in the month.
