The mission of the East Longmeadow Public Library is to provide free and equal access to information, resources, and technology.  Its purpose is to help educate and enrich our community in response to the intellectual, educational, and cultural needs and input of its patrons. The library offers an extensive variety of materials for the purpose of study or enjoyment and supports literacy and life-long learning for its town residents.

Second Floor
On the second floor of the library there are 12 computers in the Adult area and 4 computers in the Teen area with access to the Internet, Microsoft Office and other common computer programs. The library provides free access to many online databases where you may access magazine and newspaper articles, reference books, dictionaries, health information and more. Most of these databases are available from home. To access these databases and librarian-selected  web sites on many topics, including health and wellness, business, finance and more, visit our Online Resources

Wireless access and wireless printing is available throughout the library.

Meeting Rooms
The library has two public meeting rooms, the Community Room (capacity 75) and the Conference Room (capacity 12). Both rooms can be reserved by municipal/civic groups, and by other non-profit organizations providing services or information at no charge, subject to approval by the Library Director. Applications are available at the library and online. Click here for the Meeting Room Policy and Application.

The library also has a Local History Room where books and documents relating to the town’s history are stored. To preserve these irreplaceable resources for future generations, many of the items are non-circulating and the room is open to the public by appointment. Members of the East Longmeadow Historical Commission are available to assist patrons with their research in the Local History Room every Monday evening  from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Please call the library’s Information Desk (413-525-5400 ext. 1508) for more information .

Our library is proud to participate in a digital library project. “Digital Treasures” is a cooperative library digitization pilot project conceived and designed by the Central/Western Massachusetts Resource Sharing library automated network (C/W Mars) and the Central and Western Massachusetts Regional Library Systems, now Massachusetts Library System(MLS). The items selected for this digitization project will be in the areas of agriculture and industry.  A sampling of items from our Local History Room has been selected, with more to follow in the near future. We hope these images from our collection whet your appetite to explore the local history of our town in greater depth.


Visit our Newspaper & Magazine Area
Did you also know that the library subscribes to more than 130 magazines and newspapers? Each year we evaluate our current subscriptions for relevance and popularity and make changes as needed. Some of our new subscriptions are “American Artist “, “Barron’s”, “Cooks Illustrated”,  “Economist” “Family Tree Magazine”, “Digital Photo” and many more. These may all circulate with your library card.

Relax in our Reading Garden
Imagine a cold morning in February, with snow glistening on the ground. Now picture yourself in our Reading Garden, the sun streaming in, the sound of water tumbling over the pebbles in the fountain, and a good book in your hand.
