Agawam Library is Moving

to the Agawam Senior Center

As many of you many know by now, the Agawam Library recently closed due to ongoing water damage issues and an air quality test on September 7th that revealed mold in parts of our building.

We have been working hard to move the Agawam Library into the Agawam Senior Center located at 954 Main St. This is an ongoing project and will take time. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.
