About the Library




Current and back editions of the Whately Scoop may now be found at the Whately Historical Society web site at whatelyhistorical.og/Scoop.


Do you have a library card with a bar code for use in all the CW/MARS regional libraries?

If not, come in and get one!  We are now using the CW/Mars computer system and with the new card you can renew and request books online, as well as access other special services.

Whately Library Book Bags

Go Green with our new eco-friendly book bags, available for $10 at the library.  All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library.  Celebrate the library’s 60th Anniversary with our bright green cotton bags, made with 85% recycled cotton fabric, and printed with the library’s name and image.

Museum and Park Passes

The library has museum passes for Historic Deerfield, Smith College Museum of Art, and a Park Pass for all Massachusetts DCR parks and recreation facilities.

Volunteers Needed

The Library is looking for volunteers to lead craft projects for children and workshops for adults. Please contact Tiffany with your ideas and suggestions.
