The Public Library in Woburn has pretty much any source you are looking for. I have never had trouble finding information I need for projects. The staff is nice and it is easy to get a library card. 5 stars.

I have tried many times to go and enjoy this library. I have found on numerous occasions that the library was dirty and the people at the front desk although friendly were also a bit poorly dressed. I would not recommend this library at all
