Welcome to our library!

The 2104 Summer Reading Program “Fizz, Boom, Read!” ended in fire and (dry) ice last month as Shoshi of Science Tellers enthralled a enthusiastic group with “Dragons and Dreams”, a tale of wizards, a dragon and two brave kids.  Shoshi was great in explaining how scientific principles created the special effects of her story.

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. 


Our 2104 summer reading program brought a host of new visitors to our library. 
  • We very much thank the Pittsfield Suns for stopping by the library and donating game tickets. 
  •  Jacob Lavalette and family won the SUNS family ticket pack.  
  •  Maddie Mullen’s reading log was chosen to win a pair of tickets donated by the Western Massachusetts Library Advocates (WMLA) and the Eastern States Exposition to this fall’s Big E. 
  •  FYI !! Our summer LEGO® Club was so popular that we will continue on Thursdays, 3-3:45, beginning Sept. 4th, throughout the fall. Children ages 4 and up who like to build with LEGOS are invited to be creative with our library’s collection. Thanks to our donors  of used and new LEGOs. 
  • Also, The Friends of the Library have added passes to the Bidwell House in Monterey and  the  Mount Lebanon Shaker Museum/ North Family Mount Lebanon Shaker Village in Old Chatham .
