This morning one of our long-time patrons came into the library to show us her old Spotswood Library card.

This one was originally issued to her in October 1980, but she’s been living in Spotswood her entire life and used to ride her bike here when she was a kid (back when the library was housed in the Community Center).

We’re always happy to hear how much the library means to our community!

Have you always wanted to research your family tree but never knew how to begin? We can help!

Sign up for our free program, "Meet the Family: An Introduction to Family History Research" on Monday, October 30 at 6:00 pm.

Learn how to get started researching your family history from Spotswood Library's genealogy enthusiast Deb Carmody, who has been helping people discover their ancestors for the last 30+ years.

Find out what you need to get started, where to go for information and how to organize your discoveries.

There will be time at the end to ask questions and get guidance on breaking through your family's brick walls.

Registration is required as seating is limited. Please register at spotslibrary.org.

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month!

If you are a Spotswood resident you can get a library card for free! Just bring in a photo-id and proof of a Spotswood address and we'll get you all set up.

You'll also get a free Spotswood Library water bottle too since it's important to stay hydrated while you are reading a book! ;)

Please don’t do this!

This box of old books was left outside our book drop this weekend. As you can see they are now ruined due to all the rain.

We do not accept book donations for two reasons: (1) Our library is small and we do not have the space to store them. (2) Most of these books are old and therefore not something we would put on our shelves as we don’t know if they smell, have bookworms living in them or frankly if they contain the most current or up to date information available.

If you have books that you no longer want, you can recycle them by tearing off the front and back covers of the hard covered books and recycle them with other mixed paper products.
