Get ready for Father's Day by joining us for pizza and a movie! To celebrate dads (and other special guys), we're showing Disney-Pixar's "UP". Carl is a 78-year-old widower fulfilling a promise to his late wife. Russell is an 8-year-old boy earning a merit badge. Together, they have the adventure of a lifetime - and form a special bond along the way.
Roger Clark Memorial Library was one of twelve rural libraries awarded a grant by the Children's Literacy Foundation (CLiF) in May 2017. "Each library will receive brand new children’s books ($2,000 value), in addition to new books for the local elementary school ($500 value), four storytelling presentations at the elementary school and childcare center(s), $250 to support a special initiative in the library, and new books for children to keep who attend the presentations. The grants kick off with storytelling and book giveaways in fall 2017 and conclude with a finale celebration in spring 2018." Read the full Mountain Times article here.
Saturday, April 1, on the green in Pittsfield. Pop-up snowman event from 10 a.m. to noon. Let's see how many snowmen and other snow creatures we can build on the green between 10 and noon. Children of all ages invited (school-aged children please bring a parent!)! Please bring any snowman accessories and facial features you might have! Cookies and cocoa in the lower level of the Town Hall afterwards. See you there!
This year we had 168 visitors on Halloween and gave free books to 97 kids!Halloween Tradition Continues!
It's truly an honor that some of the programs we started not too long ago have become traditions, expected by the kids in town. Our Halloween book give away and our annual gingerbread decorating program are two of them. Our mission centers around community and literacy, and these two programs bring the community together AND get families in the door of the library. We hope if you come in once, you'll keep coming back.
Please stop in during our open hours for a visit, a book, a movie or a cup of coffee.
THANK YOU DANA DECKER!!!! For putting together such a great program.

Thanks to our incredibly dedicated volunteers our entire collection is now catalogued. What this means for our patrons? You can view our collection of books and DVDs online here and sort or search by author or title. It also means check out is a little smoother.
We're Warm & Welcoming!
On a cold snowy day your local library is an awfully nice place to stop in, visit with neighbors, find a book to read, borrow a movie, use our Wi-Fi and get a free cup of coffee. We're open Tuesdays 3 to 5 pm and Thursdays 5 to 7pm.
Town meeting's coming up, and there will be a few changes at the library. After several years of energetic service our Trustee and Treasurer Eunice MacDondald Rice will be stepping down from the board. We still plan to recruit her for special projects as often as possible!
And after enough years (I've lost count) I have stepped down as Library Trustee Chair. I will continue on as an active board member and volunteer, but it's someone else's turn to be in charge. I am so grateful to see a new group of library volunteers stepping up and putting in the tremendous time, effort and passion it takes to keep our library alive and well.
Every town should have a library. Please stop in, borrow a book or movie, and let the volunteers know you value your community library.
Joining the library board is a great way to serve your community, and NO experience is required.
Don't forget, we're 100% volunteer run and we quite literally would not be here without you!
In an effort to reinvigorate the membership and fulfil our mission to be a multigenerational community center fostering traditional, cultural, creative and technical literacy, the RCML Board of Trustees has been brainstorming to present to the community a variety of programming topics that may have a wide and varied appeal.
We've considered basket weaving, stargazing, cheese making, knitting, gardening, music making, game nights, movie nights and more. But we need more brains than ours. Please let us know what would be of interest to you or what skill, talent or knowledge you might like to share with the rest of us. Do you know how to hook a rug or crochet a hat. Can you teach the rest of us? Are you a film buff? Would you like to curate a monthly movie night? Can you suggest a guest speaker, performer or story teller?
We'd like to have an agenda prepared by the time of the Town Meeting in March. So, if you have ideas, talent or time please contact a RCML trustee soon.
We're open! Come in and see YOUR new library.
Tues 3 to 5
Thurs 3 to 6
