This was well promoted throughout downtown with rack cards, so the 4 of us decided to check it out. The building was beautiful and historical framed photos with detailed descriptions were interesting to say the least...

Wonderful old library with lots of history of the area and a book sale as well. Also right in the library is the half price ticket desk and we got tickets to the Barrington Stage Company play for that night.

We stopped in and saw a terrific art exhibit in the adjunct building. The library also offers 1/2 price tickets to local attractions and performances.

A beautiful small-town New England library, worth a visit. In the downtown area of Lenox, in the Berkshires.

The library opens at 11 AM this morning. You would sign up for your spot to buy the tix that were available. You return at noon and procure those tix that remain available.

History and good reading spots...all make for a terrific spot in one's day! We stopped in to explore and were taken in by the book sale, the comfortable reading sections, helpful tips on good books, and having the opportunity to be in a real library!

I wasn't sure why this was listed as a place to visit but I am glad that we listened. The library is housed in an old courthouse. The architecture is quite interesting and we were impressed with how they made it work as a library. We didn't have an opportunity to take advantage of it but they have a very... More
