Join the Library

The Worthington Library is a public library open to all. You need not be a member to use the library, but we invite you to support the library and its programs. Membership is open to both residents and non-residents of Worthington.  There is an annual fee for membership, currently $15 for individuals and $20 for families.

Privileges of membership include free access to all our resources, except for a $1.00 fee to borrow most DVDs and videos for an entire week.

To join the library you can phone, send an email, or better yet, stop by during library hours to browse our collection while becoming a member. 


To make a contribution to the library, make your check payable to The Worthington Library and mail it to us at P.O. Box 598, Worthington, MA 01098.  The Worthington Library is a 501(c)(3) organization, so donations are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
