Holiday hours Monday, April 21

In observance of Patriots Day, the Library will be open from 1 to 11 p.m. on Monday, April 21.

The day commemorates the beginnings of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord. Minute Man National Historical Park is hosting a variety of events this weekend to mark the occasion. The North Bridge Visitor Center at the park is about 1.5 miles from the Concord station on the MBTA’s Fitchburg commuter rail service from North Station, and a guided bus tour of Lexington and Concord also makes stops at the Concord station. Visit the park’s site for more information.
