About the Library

Acton Citizens' Library is a welcoming reader's library in the heart of West Acton Village at 21 Windsor Ave, near the intersection of Windsor and Mass Ave. Located in West Acton's historical district, this simple Greek Revival-style house is the oldest library in Acton.

Chances are the latest best sellers await you at our casual neighborhood library. We specialize in putting popular books and magazines into the hands of readers, young and old.  

For our youngest patrons, the library sponsors a Tot Time program that introduces 2-to-5 year olds to the joy of reading. For older kids, we stock a popular collection of children and young adult books plus a small juvenile non-fiction section which follows the elementary school curriculum. For adults, we offer an excellent selection of fiction, mysteries, popular non-fiction and a large print collection.

Come to our reading room with comfy couches, stay a while, and browse the most current magazines and books. Our low-key approach means no cards, no fees and no waiting. Our only request is that you return borrowed books and magazines in three weeks to our location.

At West Acton Citizens Library, we also offer a home delivery service of books to housebound patrons, on-site public computers, wireless internet in our homelike setting and readily-available museum passes. 

In the summertime, we open the library during Acton-Boxborough Farmer's Market hours.
