About the Library

The Morse Institute Library, “Natick’s Community Library,” stands in the heart of downtown Natick. The beautifully remodeled building houses 200,000 books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.

You’ll find the latest bestsellers, popular movies, current magazines and newspapers, and local history information. We also offer reduced admission passes to area museums, including many major Boston museums.

A Natick library card gives you 24/7 online access to eBooks and digital audiobooks, magazine and journal articles, and premium resources for homework help, business research, and all-ages learning.

Free Wi-Fi, public computers, and an abundance of comfortable reading and study areas make the library a popular stopping place. With quality programs for all ages, meeting rooms for the public, art and history exhibits, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff ready to help you find information, master new technology, or discover your next favorite book, we strive to be an essential part of our community.
