The Swansea Public Library is initiating an outreach program to provide services to patrons who are homebound due to health or transportation issues.
The library will work closely with each patron to identify the patron’s preferences. Specific titles or authors may be requested or the librarian will make selections based upon the patron’s interests. The items will then be delivered and picked up. Books in both regular and large print, as well as audiobooks, music CDs, movies and magazines are available.
If you or someone you know could benefit from this service, please contact the Swansea Public Library at 508-674-9609.

Swansea's Veterans Memorial Green - If you wish to purchase a lasered brick to honor a veteran living or deceased call Don at the American legion post 303. His cell phone number is (774) 488 4288. The bricks are $50.00 and can contain 3 lines lasered to honor a veteran for their service to our country. The Veteran being honored does not have to be a Swansea resident. It is amazing how the community has responded to this project. On behalf of our veterans we ask your support in this most worthy project. Thank You!
