Cemetery Walk: The Stockbridge Library: From Market Basket to Building and Beyond


On Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. volunteers from the Stockbridge Library’s Museum & Archives will present the second cemetery walk of the 2016 season: The Stockbridge Library: From Market Basket to Building and Beyond.

Stockbridge’s first library was a private lending association with books delivered to members by market basket. Two hundred and twenty-five years later, the Stockbridge Library is a beautifully renovated building, open to all citizens, and offering access to collections across the state. Throughout it all, the work and love of the community has made it possible. Come discover the people and stories behind this remarkable transformation.

The walk gathers at the cemetery gate on Main Street (Route 102), Stockbridge. Parking is available at the old Town Hall, across from the gate. A $5.00 donation is suggested.

This is the second of five monthly walks of the Stockbridge Cemetery, June through October. Each monthly walk has a different theme. All walks take place on the first Saturday of the month, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

For more information, please contact the Stockbridge Library, Museum & Archives at 413-298-5501.
