Historical Note


The Jones Library, along with its two branches, is the public library for the Town of Amherst, Massachusetts. The library was established in 1919 through the bequest of Samuel Minot Jones, a Chicago lumberman who grew up on Amity Street in Amherst. The library was housed first at the Amherst Town Hall, then the Amherst House, and finally at the Whipple House before the current building was completed in 1928. Governed by a Board of Trustees, the library provides a range of circulating materials, electronic resources, special collections, programming, and events for residents of Amherst and the surrounding area.

The library’s first director was Charles Green, who established the library as a space for community performances and gatherings and encouraged local authors, poets, academics, biographers, and other literary figures to come speak at the library. Green retired in 1954 after 34 years as director. Subsequent directors include William Merrill (1954-1970), Quentin de Streel (1970-1975), Anne Turner (1975-1980), Bonnie Isman (1980-2010), and Sharon Sharry (2011-present).

Additional information about the early years of the library can be found in Frank Prentice Rand’s book, The Jones Library in Amherst, 1919-1969.
