At times it can get a bit frenzied in town and this darling and very functional facility offers a lovely respite from all the tourism and dining experiences found just outside its doors. If you are a card holder you will find a very satisfactory collection of books, DVD's, services, and activities at your disposal. Even if you do not... More

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

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
