Arms Library

Arms LibraryThe Arms Library has served the towns of Shelburne and Buckland since 1854, when Major Ira Arms established the Shelburne Falls Circulating Library Society with a bequest. In 1913, Francis R. Pratt and Lydia Taft Pratt of Greenfield offered to give an appropriate library building in memory of his parents, Josiah and Catherine Pratt.

In 2011, as the beautiful Pratt Memorial Library Building neared its centennial, Tropical Storm Irene swept through Shelburne Falls. The storm caused damage that revealed the urgent need for a new roof and copper dome, as well as other structural repairs and reinforcements. With the help of community donations and the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund, many major renovations came to fruition—and the library is ready for its next 100 years.

In a second phase, the Arms Library has recently undergone seven months of interior renovations, preceded by several years of fundraising. Included in the renovations are: a new children's and young adult room, meeting space, adult fiction room, historical displays, electric wiring, air conditioning, lighting, and space for more computers. One of the goals of the renovation was to make the Arms even more of a community meeting space. The building was modernized while maintaining its historic nature.

Join the Arms Library for its reopening on May 19, 2-4 p.m. There will be tours of the newly renovated spaces, including our new children's room and meeting room, music for all ages, a brief time for acknowledging our donors, and refreshments. Contact us at 413-625-0306, or find us at the Arms Library website and on Facebook.

For twenty years, I've been helping businesses and nonprofits build clean, beautiful websites that are easy to use and easy to update. Your website is the face that your business presents to the world, and it should reflect your unique style and voice. Through custom design and friendly advice, I'll help you show that face to the world in the best light.

I help my clients demystify the world of technology. My goal is for you to feel confident about your website so you can focus on your business. I can handle all the details for you, or teach you to make website updates yourself - whatever works best with your interests, schedule, and budget. I also offer web hosting, including personal support for any technical issues.

Do you need a logo, business card, brochure, sign, or other printed materials? Consistent graphic design is crucial to a professional image, and I can create a look and feel that best represents your business - and impresses your customers.
