Very quaint, quiet and welcoming little place that brings back memories of libraries of the past, when we were children. There is nothing to dislike.

We spent a few hours reading books and enjoying the old (Carnegie) part of the library. The library will soon be moving to another location.

Great, cozy space. They also have a free book swap area in the foyer. I always take a book/leave a book when I visit.

Hurry up and see the old Carnegie library before they move into there new library. A classic public library with internet, books, and news papers to enjoy. Not to mention friendly library staff ! You can even get a free library card as a Massachusetts resident, or a small fee for outside residency. I would recommend getting one if you... More

Great books, nice librarians and plenty of other media. Cool place to escape the crowds and the heat in summer. Get a book bag and support this gem!!!

As a Massachusetts resident, sign up for a temporary library card and grab a book or DVD for later at the hotel.

The kids ran out of books to read (huh?) on vacation... we were able to get our own CLAMS card and check out books for them, cookbooks, for me, NYT crossword puzzle copies every day... The children's resource librarian stands head and shoulders above any other we've met: her patience with the wiffle waffle pre-teens was honorary... we will be... More

We enjoyed a free jazz concert on the front lawn on a Thursday night. It's nice to have the wifi available there, and it's conveniently located in town. Nonresidents can get a temporary card for $10, which might be worth it if you're staying for a while or if you will check out a lot of materials while you're there.

Cool and comfortable, go in and read up-to date papers in comfortable chairs . Free Wi-fi and free 15min on their computers if you don't have a smart phone I guess most people do these days but convenient for oversees visitors. Very helpful staff who are used to all nationalities. Off season they screen some great movies ( Downton Abbey)... More

Walking back to the hotel we discovered a concert was about to begin so we sat down and enjoyed the music of a local musician. Very enjoyable.
