Library Spotlight Series: Worcester Public Library-Frances Perkins Branch

(Updated January 2024) Over the years, WCKC has been highlighting Central MA public libraries to find out all the goods! For each new library we visit, we’ll report back on questions like: What makes this library extra special? What programs can you expect? What passes does this library offer?

We start our series in Worcester at Frances Perkins Branch on West Boylston Street. We chose this branch to start with because it is near and dear to our family. This was the first library we visited as a family many years ago.

Regular events:

  • Tuesday Mornings at 10 am: Family Story time
  • Friday Mornings at 10:30 am: STEAM & Stories

You will also find movies, live presentations, holiday events, crafts, and more on their schedule. You will see these listed on the WCKC calendar of events or directly on the library website.
