Welcome to the Beals Memorial Library, Winchendon’s Public Library!
This year we celebrate 110 years of providing a collection that expands opportunities for life-long learning, and offers programs and events that encourage and inspire fresh cultural experiences. In 2018, the building became fully accessible to all with the installation of an elevator to all floors, and in 2023, through funding from the citizens of Winchendon and the Robinson-Broadhurst Foundation, we were able to update our electrical and fire alarm systems, as well as repair and paint our cracked plaster walls and ceilings. The Library looks as beautiful as it did on the day of its dedication and I invite you all to come take a look. Along with the rejuvenation of the Library building itself, we also pledge to renew our commitment to deliver the quality patron services, resources and programs that our community deserves.

Our Mission

The Beals Memorial Library provides a free and open environment where all may gather for education, culture and information. The library seeks to inspire and encourage literacy, growth and lifelong learning.

Our History

The library was built in 1913 with a $10,000 donation by Charles Beals in memory of his wife, parents and siblings.  The library has been a gem in the small town of Winchendon and continues to grow.
