Our History

The Lenox Library holds a very special place in the intellectual, cultural and historical life of its community. In 1871, the Greek Revival former courthouse building was purchased for use as a “public library and reading room free to all visitors and inhabitants of Lenox.”

Mission

We provide equal access to information and ideas through a wide variety of materials and programs for community members of all ages.

How do we do this?  By being a vibrant community resource to the public through convenient hours, accessibility and professionally chosen resources and programs.
