Welcome to the

Malden K-8 Libraries

The students and faculty of each of the five K-8 schools in Malden -- Beebe, Ferryway, Forestale, Linden STEAM Academy and Salemwood -- have the opportunity to enjoy their own library.

Each library brings together a diverse collection of books available for borrowing without cost on a wide selection of topics and reading levels: picture books, early and emergent readers, series books, realistic fiction as well as fantasy, science fiction and mysteries, classic literature and poetry, graphic story telling, biographies, non-fiction works on subjects from science, to customs and folklore, the paranormal and arts and recreation.

Interesting statistic : each library has between 10,000 and 12,500 separate titles.
