This library is in a historic building that mixes books and history. I really enjoyed ambling through and learning about the place and browsing the books. It is very well kept.

We love visiting this library because it is a heritage building and they have kept it up very well. We particularly enjoy the book sale that seems to go on year round and the prices are great.

While you are in downtown Lenox, take a few minutes and tour the library. It has some interesting displays and architectural features, including the ceiling on the third floor.
