New Acquisitions

What’s New?
Oh my! There are too many new books to list. Some can be found on the New Shelf. Some are “new to us” and you’ll need to browse a bit to find them. Your clues will be found in the Acquistions lists. Check often – more are added all the time!
Check the Recent Acquistions lists near the photocopier.

Looking for newspapers, academic journals or more information? Try the Massachusetts Library System’s Statewide Databases.

Did you know? The library has passes to Berkshire Museum, The Clark, Historic Deerfield (from the Historical Society), Mass MoCA, and Smith College Art Museum.

ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Acrylic Paintings by Brent James adorn the library this month. Colorful and unique – don’t miss them.
