If you use a library in another town, which library/libraries do you use and why?

Amherst/Greenfield (they are "on my way")

Carnegie only to drop off and pick up passes as Montague Center doesn't have them.

I can walk to the MC library, but use other libraries when MC is not open or I want to get something that it doesn't have or just to check out another place! Greenfield, Sunderland, Turners, S. Deerfield

I have used the Greenfield Library for access to Ancestry.com. This resource is also available at the Montague Center Library and I have used it on numerous occasions. But the connection is super slow and requires multiple steps to reach the site in contrast to the Greenfield Library where it is available on the sign-in screen. In addition, the hours of the Greenfield Library have been more convenient at times. 

I like Northfield as its the same distance to me as TF. I used to live in Northfield. It's a great building with lots of history.

I like to visit other libraries to read the bulletin boards, eavesdrop on gossip about people and towns I don't know, browse the stacks, and just be with neighbors

I occasionally stop by the sunderland library if I'm driving by...and I now go to the leverett library (picking up kids at LES) about 2x a month. I LOVE the new Erving library, the Northfield free puzzle saturdays, and the Tilton Library programs.

I often use the Dickinson library in Northfield because it is beautiful and has old fashioned cozy places to sit and read. Unfortunately they have poor quality literature—lots of junky serial authors and mostly just knitting, gardening and cooking in nonfiction. But the building is nice so I bring my own books to read. 

I ordered lots of books from other libraries thru Interlibrary loan, so I "use" a lot of libraries

I stop in at other libraries when I'm nearby -- Leverett, Northfield & the new Greenfield library which is fabulous

I use Greenfield because it has more room.

I use my internet
