Moving

Less than a week away from now the Arms Library will be on the move! We are temporarily moving to the meeting room of the Greenfield Cooperative Bank, 33 Bridge Street, Shelburne Falls.

The library at its regular location on the corner of Main and Bridge streets will be closed September 24 through January 2019. Regular hours, Mon. 1 p.m. – 7 p.m., Wed. 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Story Hour and Third Friday Open Prose and Poetry will continue throughout the renovation. Telephone numbers will be 413-625-0306 and 413-512-3389, but please try to use the second one.

The library will still offer interlibrary loans ordering and pick up, a small browsing collection of the latest adult fiction and non-fiction, children’s titles, DVDs, audiobooks, and our regular stash of newspapers and magazines. Books may be dropped off at our temporary location during open library hours, or, when we are closed, in the regular bookdrop beside the library's front steps. We even got a little cart for trekking books across the street to the bank.

We are encouraging people to make even more use of the interlibrary loan system, our other local libraries, and electronic media during this time period. We may even have a few Kindles on hand for borrowing so folks can try them out. If anyone needs assistance with any of the systems we are here to help. The bookdrop will be available in its regular spot to the left of the library.

Over the past months we have been cleaning and clearing out spaces, packing offices and small items. We hired a proffessional mover to move out every single book and every piece of furniture. (That's the 24th and 25th.) The library will be almost entirely empty. It has not been that way since 1914!
