V. Fletcher Library).  Teachers can apply for a special Teacher’s Library card at the Main Circulation Desk.

ELIGIBLE TEACHERS

School teachers employed by the Westford Public School System, the Nashoba Valley Technical High School, Westford pre-schools, and Home Schools are provided additional library services in support of educational curriculum and assignments.
