During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Everett Public Libraries have altered both its available services as well as hours of operation. For the time, our Libraries, both the Parlin Memorial Library and the Shute Memorial Library, are operating Monday - Friday, from 9AM - 5PM, closed on Saturdays and Sundays.


Patrons will be allowed to reserve materials if they have a library card and will be given a time window to retrieve them. Brown paper bags with the patron's first initial and last name will be filled with the requested items and placed on a tablefor pickup. Pickups will be made available to patrons Monday - Friday, 10:00am - 4:00pm at both the Parlin Library (410 Broadway) and Shute Library (781 Broadway). The Parlin pickup location is in the first-floor atrium. The Shute pickup location is in the front entrance atrium.

Requests/holds must be made prior to coming to the Libraries. Patrons will NOT be able to enter the buildings, peruse the stacks, nor make requests for items while onsite. Rather, patrons may elect one of the following three options for selecting items before coming to the Libraries:

Parlin - 617-394-2300; Shute - 617-394-2308
Email: Parlin - ; Shute -
Online: Visit the Everett Library Catalog, peruse the libraries' collections, and place a hold.

For those who do not yet have an Everett Library Card, appointments can be made via the phone numbers or email addresses above. A staff member will inform you of a date and time to come as well as what identification materials you must bring with you. A staff member will provide you with a sheet to fill out when you arrive and, once complete, print you out a personal library card.

For the safety of our staff and our patrons, items must be returned via the book drop found at the exterior of each building. At the Parlin Library, the book drop is located to the right of the first-floor entrance. At the Shute Library, the book drop is located to the left of the front entrance. Once returned, items will be quarantined for 72 hours before returning to the stacks, which may cause a slight delay in the availability of some items.
