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.

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!

A beautiful building inside and out! Walked in just to look around, and found a vibrant contemporary library (computers available, DVDs and audio books, plus the usual hard back volumes).
