Quiet Study Rooms

Quiet Study Rooms

 

There are two small study rooms available at Mason Library for individual or small group use.  Both rooms have a two hour time limit for either room.  One is available to reserve up to two weeks in advance by stopping by or calling the circulation desk at 413-528-2403 ext. 3.  The second room is available on a walk-in basis.

The rooms are reserved for educational and community purposes and must be vacated promptly when the time period ends.

 

Local History Room

The Local History Room is a dedicated space to use the library’s collection of local history books, cemetery listings, family genealogies, and material on microfilm. Patrons doing historical or genealogical research using the library’s collections have precedence over patrons wishing to use the space as a quiet room, a space to hold meetings or a tutoring space.  The exception to this, and the only time the room can be reserved, is when it is necessary for a meeting to be held to conduct library or town business during normal hours of operation.  When the room is not being used, patrons may use it on a walk-in basis with the understanding that they will have to vacate the space when required.  Patrons must check in with staff at the circulation desk before using the room.
