As a volunteer at the Brewster Ladies' Library, I see how hard the employees work to make sure every patron gets what they need. This library is small but always growing and keeping up with the latest books, magazines, movies, etc. and what the public is needing and wanting. There are many organizations and clubs that utilize this facility. There... More

The Brewster Ladies Library is a true gem. The staff is helpful and kind, the building itself is beautiful and well appointed, and the collections are broad. And thanks to the CLAMS partnership, the BLL is able to be an intermediary and obtain a wide array of materials from other libraries. A great resource for the Town of Brewster. PS:... More

In the basement, they have a sensational used book sale each July that we go to every summer. You can stock up on a... More
