About Us

Welcome to the Kids Room!

As you enter the Jones Library through the front door, the Kids Room is your first left. We encourage you to ask us for help in finding the perfect book to take home!

Our collections include an extensive picture book section, books on CD, DVDs, music CDs, and so much more. We offer a wide variety of free programming for kids from birth to age 10. Check out our Teen page for events for 11-17 year olds.

We are here to assist you in any way that we can! Please feel free to contact the Kids Desk at 413-259-3091 or by email with any questions.


What to Expect in the Kids Room

Effective Tuesday, September 7th, we are expanding our open hours! Some things will be the same; some things will be different. Here's what you can expect:

  • We ask caregivers to stay close to their children
  • Public computers will be available in the Reference Room only (not in the Kids Room), but we do have catalog computers throughout the Kids space
  • Items can be checked out at the Kids Desk (please return all items at the adult Circulation Desk on your way in)
  • All hold items will be at the adult Circulation Desk
  • More seating will be available
  • No library toys will be available onsite or for loan
  • No indoor programs will be held — view our outdoor & remote programs
  • Book bundles will be available for indoor pick-up at Jones; outdoor pick-up at Munson
  • We've moved many of our collections around — ask us to point you in the right direction!
  • We'll have lots of displays to help you find books fast

We look forward to seeing you!
