This is a wonderful library in a historic building. The building is surrounded by small well tended garden.
Their reading rooms are comfortable, cozy and relaxing, good places place to peruse the daily daily newspapers and magazines available.
The staff of the library is helpful and pleasant.
If you are staying in Lenox for 1 week+ you can take out a temporary membership which entitles you to borrow books and others materials, use their computers and obtain free passesto some attractions when available.

This is such beautiful old library. Lot of places to sit and relax and enjoy a good book. And on a nice day the reading park outside is a lovely place to enjoy your book.

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... The show was a local artists show, it was well displayed in a separate room and had an attendant to warmly greet us. This was a grand honor to be hosted with such respect and promotion with not any expectation of making a buck, I would wonder if they even took a commission for a sale. Very nice support for upcoming artists.
