Welcome to the North Adams Community Memorial Library web site!

A library can be the heart of the community and that is my vision for our library. A place to meet friends, work on projects, prepare homework and, keep in touch with distant friends and family.

Goodness! We have been very busy this past year.The automation project is still ongoing, with fewer and fewer books containing cards for circulation, and more and more containing bar codes! It's quite exciting! It makes everything we do so much easier! Plus! It allows you to log into your account at any time, see what you have borrowed, and renew it if you want to. And if you don't want to do that on your own, or you have a problem with it, you can always contact the library through telephone, email, or Facebook Messenger.

We have hired a part-time employee. Kristen Finnegan started in March and will be taking care of Children's Services and assisting throughout the library. Please stop in and welcome her! When you come in to register for Summer Reading, you will probably be talking with Kristen.

Be sure to take a look at the page here (link in the gray bar at the top of this page) about our Summer Reading program. We have lots of things planned for this summer and are looking forward to seeing you here!

The library is still looking for donations of North Adams-Jerome school yearbooks. If you find that you are in possession of yearbooks that you no longer want, please consider donating them to the library. They will become part of our Local History collection. They will be for use only in the library. We want to preserve them for the future while making them available for the use of the community.

Which yearbooks do we need? It's easier to tell you what we have! We HAVE: 1955, 1956. 1974, 1976, 1977. 1979, 1980, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1987. 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998. 2000, 2004, 2005, and 2007 thru 2017. Any other years that you would like to donate will be gladly accepted and added to the collection.

See you soon!
