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.

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
