Passes are available on first-come, first-served basis. However, residents of the Town of Southbridge may reserve a pass in advance in person at the Information Desk on the Main Level or by phone at 508-764-5426 (see pass information for any exceptions). These passes are made available through the generosity of the Friends of the Jacob Edwards Library.
