Macalaster is the perfect place for quiet study. When I need a break, I peruse the ever-growing collection of 10,000+ books, 75 magazines, and 300+ films. There are also 11 desktop computers, the Blindloss Reading Room, a conference room with TV/DVD player, a study area with a fireplace, and a copy machine.

Macalaster is open until 10 p.m. Sunday – Friday, and 1 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, contact Lauren Cunniffe, Librarian 
at (413) 774-2711 or
