The purpose of the West Stockbridge Public Library is to enable all to be effective users of information and to appreciate and enjoy literature and other creative expressions of information. Our collection includes books for all types of readers, 14 magazine subscriptions, the daily Berkshire Eagle and weekly Record, DVD's, and audiobook CD's, as well as museum day passes to local attractions. We offer 4 public computers, a Kindle preloaded with best sellers,and wifi access for laptops.
October is one of our favorite months at the library. We’ll showcase fun, scary Halloween books all month and have Tricks or Treats for any child in costume on Halloween, Friday, Oct. 31st, between 2-6. Get ready to smile for the camera when you stop by.
This year, we’re also adding a Halloween costume contest featuring book art. Book art refers to artworks that utilize books or the book form. Our challenge asks creative designers of all ages to dress up a Library Hedgehog for Halloween. Prizes for the best, most imaginatively costumed hedgehog.
Ready-made hedgehogs available at the library or get directions to make your own. Please include a brief description of your entry and all entries due Oct. 28th.
