Our Collection

Our book collection numbers more than 8,000 volumes, with more titles added each month.  There are fiction and non-fiction books for children, young adults and adults.  In addition, we have an extensive selection of DVDs, videos, audio books and periodicals.  If we don’t have what you want we can probably get it for you at no cost through inter-library loan.

Inter-Library Loan

You may request a book through inter-library loan by phone (413-238-5565) or by email (  Tell us the title and author and include your name, phone and member number or library card number.  We will call you when your book, DVD, or other material is ready to be picked up.

High-speed internet access is currently available in both the library and the parking lot, and in the spring of 2013 the library will provide even faster internet access through a fiber optic connection. We have five computers for use by the public during library hours – or you can bring your laptop and access the internet at any time from our parking lot.
