The Rees Reading Room

The Academy at Charlemont Library (The Rees Reading Room) is dedicated to being a dynamic center for inquiry and learning by providing resources to support the curriculum, enhance personal development, and to encourage the pleasure of reading and learning.

To further that mission the library has been digitized! A new era is upon us, and things are changing. Students and faculty now check out books by scanning their individual library cards and the barcodes assigned to each book in our library.  They can also search our collection online.

Public Libraries in Massachusetts belong to the CWMARS system. You can search for material in the entire CWMARS network or by a specific library. We encourage all students to get a library card from their local library and you will need one to access the CWMARS system. If a book is not available in the Academy’s or at your local library CWMARS will deliver it to your local library.

Most of the local libraries will also have a link to the CWMARS system.
