What’s Happening

September YA Craft: DIY T-Shirt Scarves

Fall is on the way! Come by the library on Friday September 19 at 3:30 for our t-shirt scarf event! We’ll be making different styles of t-shirt scarves. If you can, please bring a t-shirt to style (medium in men’s, large in women’s with no side seams). Ages 10+.
Please register by calling 413-587-1010.

Summer Reading is here!

Summer Reading begins June 23 for teens. It’s simple- read a book and briefly review it. For every entry you return, you will be entered to win our weekly raffle. The more you read, the more chances you have to win!

You can check out some of our special programs on our events page (click the teen events tab to the top right). From spooky shows to make your own slime…we’ve got it all!
