BHPL is the second building in the large parking lot at 110 Roosevelt Ave., the smaller building with the blue door. Since the library does not have a certificate of occupancy yet, you will need to ring the doorbell and a staff member will bring your library books.

The evening book group is meeting on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Dunkin' Donuts on Springfield Ave. to discuss Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance.
