Curbside Pickup

The Arms Library began curbside service on Wednesday, May 27th. We will provide materials from our collection. Interlibrary loan delivery has not yet begun; we have not been given a time frame for that service.

Here's how it works: look through the Arms Library C/W MARS catalogue to see if we have an item/s in our collection. Call us at 413-625-0306 and we will check the shelves for you, and pull the item from the shelf. We will then set up a time for the person to pick it/them up. One of the staff members will meet you at the door, and hand over the sanitized item/s.

Pandemic Distractions:

Acorn TV, The Great Courses and Qello Concerts. You can access these from outside of the library. You just need your library card number and you can have a license for a week, to watch as many movies as you want! Just in case you might be craving some binge-watching right now.

Arms Library, Shelburne Falls, MassachusettsThe Arms Library, housed in the historic Pratt Memorial Library Building, is located at 60 Bridge Street on the corner of Bridge and Main Streets.
