About Us


The two Great Barrington Libraries work together to bring the town and region access to a large collection of books, movies, and books-on-tape. We offer extensive interlibrary loan, high speed internet, wireless internet, programs and more at both locations.

The mission of the Great Barrington Libraries is to serve all members of our evolving community in a welcoming manner.
We are dedicated to:

  • Providing and promoting responsive, free, and ready access to printed and electronic resources.
  • Developing collections and programming that include a broad spectrum of materials and services.
  • Encouraging everyone to experience the joy of reading and learning.
