North Adams Community Memorial Library

Welcome to the North Adams Community Memorial Library!

Home page


We are currently in Level 2 of 6 with our reopening plan, which is Social Distancing. We are open to the public with some restrictions/limitations of services as outlined in our Reopening Plan (see News). The Library Board has decided to operate at our regular hours, and we are able to have a total occupancy of no more than 17 persons at one time. Due to this restriction, we ask that you please call or email the library before entering if our parking lot is busy. Remember, our CURBSIDE PICKUP is always available.

We ask that our patrons please be mindful of all patrons and staff while inside the library, and continue to wear a mask and social distance. Please continue to place all book returns, including MeLCat items, in the outside Book Drop. 

We appreciate your patience and enthusiasm as the new building opens up for full hours and services. Regularly scheduled programs and events will resume shortly, so please keep a lookout on this page and our library Facebook page for details!

See the library's COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, and Reopening Phases under COVID-19 Resources.
