Library Closed 3/14/20 & 3/16/20

In order to facilitate a deep cleaning of the building, the North Adams Public Library will be closed Saturday, March 14th and Monday, March 16th. Please do not return items to the dropbox on these days. We will backdate all items when we reopen and can extend due dates for those patrons who need it. This is an evolving situation and we will post updates to our social media pages as well at the library’s website.

Additional time for Uncharted Wild Live Animal Show!

Due to an overwhelming interest in Thursday, February 20th Live Animal show at the North Adams Public Library, there will now be two show times, 2:00 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.! We are limited to the number of people we can have in the room at a time. Please note that if you come to the 2:00 p.m. show and it is full, you are welcome to come to the 3:15 p.m. show. Thanks to the Friends of the NAPL for sponsoring this fun event!

Uncharted Wild

March Book Club – The Farm by Joanne Ramos

Join us March 12 from 2-3:30 in our 3rd floor meeting room as we discuss The Farm by Joanne Ramos. Everyone welcome! 

The Farm book cover“So many factors—gender, race, religion, class—may determine where you come down on the surrogacy debate. . . . Ramos plays with many of these notions in her debut novel, The Farm, which imagines what might happen were surrogacy taken to its high-capitalist extreme. . . . The stage is set for lively book chat.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)


February Featured E-Resource

Featured e-resources for FebruaryThe NAPL has so much to offer besides books – we’ve decided to showcase some of our online resources starting this month.

Our A-Z databases provide fascinating information about our country, about the world, and about world food.

What languages are spoken in Holland? What type of government does Mongolia use, and what does it take to become a citizen? Find out in A-Z The World. Are you traveling to Uruguay, and want to try out some of the local dishes before you go? Use recipes from A-Z World Food. Or check out A-Z USA to learn about the demographics of Iowa.

Cool fact: when you look up a country in A-Z The World, it will provide the current date, time, and weather in the capital city. (As I write this it is 41 degrees and sunny at 3:30 in the afternoon in Dublin, Ireland!)

You can access all this information through our website. Click on the E-Resources Menu and have your library card handy to log in!
