library viewWhat does
this library
have to offer?

This library offers a diverse collection of books, DVDs, audio books, magazines, newspapers, CDs, and an digital collection, as well as access to a vast amount of materials through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) programs via Central/Western Massachusetts Automated Resource Sharing (C/W MARS). We have several computers with internet and research databases, free WiFi, printer, and a copy machine.  We have the distinction of being the "library with a view," with an expansive back lawn overlooking the hills. Both this area and our indoor community room host a wide range of programs for patrons of all ages. Click here for more details.


This brand new beautiful handmade quilt, donated for a raffle fundraiser for the Friends of the Whately Library, is on display in the library. You can purchase raffle tickets and the lucky winner will be drawn on December 2, the day of the Annual Holiday Craft Fair.

multi-use cafe 
is housed in the downstairs Robert M. Duda Community Room and is open for use whenever the library is open and there is not an event or meeting taking place (please consult calendar on this website and posted on cafe door). This cafe is a cozy, welcoming place to use as a work space, chat with friends, use our wifi, read, play board games (we have them), or make things (we have arts and crafts supplies). The Muse also hosts occasional pop-up coffee shops, where you will find fresh coffee, tea, baked goods, and live or recorded background music. Come on down!
