Please note the library will be closed today - Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - due to the weather.
We hope to see you tomorrow, when we will be open from 2pm until 6pm.

Visit us in the West Stockbridge Town Hall for books for all kinds of readers,daily newspapers, DVDs and books on tape, and passes to local attractions. WiFi, too!

We're starting an exciting new chapter here at our library. Please welcome Rachel Alter, who takes over as library director January 1st. Rachel has many years of experience working in a variety of libraries. 
              I've so very much enjoyed serving as your librarian these past five years. It's been a pleasure and privilege. (FYI- I'm not really going away since I'll be filling in at the desk when needed. I look forward to seeing all of you at our terrific community library.)

Be sure to read about our very own Podcast Rock Stars, new neighbors Rebecca Sheir and Eric Shimelonis at www.berkshireeagle.com/stories/rock-stars-of-the-childrens-podcast-world.

Rebecca and Eric are the very talented and creative folks responsible for Circle Round, a storytelling podcast for children and “the young at heart.” Each segment at Boston NPR affiliate WBUR features traditional folktales served up in new ways and told by well-known performers.

   Our favorite? “Why the Ocean is Salty” with Lou Diamond Phillips. Find your favorite at www.WBUR.org, go to Programs and Podcasts, then Circle Round. Download the podcasts on iTunes by searching for  “Circle Round” in the  “Kids & Family” category. (We also love the coloring pages and thoughtful activities for each story.)
