Join Emily’s Friends at the Library on Thursday, June 8 at 6pm for, “Mt. Tom’s Incredible Reptiles,” a presentation from Tom Tyning, professor of Environmental Science at Berkshire Community College and author of, A Guide to Amphibians and Reptiles.  The 4-mile long Mt. Tom Range is home to some of the most fascinating resident and migratory wildlife species in all of New England.  Mr. Tyning will give a presentation that will focus on the vast population of reptiles and amphibians that live on Mt. Tom.

A short business meeting will precede Mr. Tyning’s presentation.

Support us on Valley Gives Day

Valley Gives Day is Tuesday, May 2 and the Library is excited to be part of it!  We hope you will consider supporting us.  Not only does your donation of $10 to $1,000 help our library continue to provide an expanding array of programs and services to people of all ages, but your online donation during Valley Gives Day will go even further:

Once again this year we have the potential to receive a matching gift of $2,500.  Your donation of any amount during Valley Gives Day will help us try to meet that match and receive that extra donation.

Also, throughout the day your donation helps the Library can be entered into a variety of raffles for cash prizes.  These are some of raffle prizes being offered throughout the day that our Library could qualify for:

Golden Tickets — these are $500 prizes that will be awarded randomly during the day.  If we receive a donation during the designated hour we will be entered into a drawing to win one of these $500 prizes.

Power Hours — there are two hours during Valley Gives Day that have this designation.  If we receive a donation during one of these two designated hours, we will be entered into a drawing to win one of these two $1,000 prizes.

The two Power Hours are:
10:00-10:59am
8:00-8:59pm

For more information on the times for Golden Ticket Hours as well as other time-based prizes that our Library could potentially win from your online donation during Valley Gives Day, click this link.

We hope you will donate to us during Valley Gives Day.  Your donation is truly important and will allow us to continue to offer the great programs and collections that you have come to rely on.
