Library

Mason in Great Barrington and Ramsdell in Housatonic comprise The Great Barrington Libraries, a municipal department overseen by the Town Manager. There is a six-person elected Board of Trustees which is responsible for plans, policies, and priorities. There is also a Friends of the GB Libraries group which is non-profit and raises money through the sale of donated books.

The libraries are funded by the taxes of the people of Great Barrington and strive to provide a variety of current educational and cultural materials as well as welcoming spaces for quiet study, programs, and public meetings. Volunteers are very important to the libraries; individuals are encouraged to apply for training.

The Great Barrington Libraries also have their own web site:
