July 2017: We are currently in the process of digitizing the historic artifacts and family geneologies within the Sherman Room. During this time, we are unable to fill research requests. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Sherman Room is our multipurpose historical room at the library. It serves as a historical room for the town of Brimfield, a meeting room for local groups and clubs, a space for library events, and also provides extra seating for library patrons looking for a quiet place to read and study.
If you would like to look through the materials in the Sherman Room or have a particular question or subject regarding town history you are interested in, please contact us. While we will do our best to help anyone who walks in with a question related to the Sherman Room materials and town history, it would be best to contact us in advance so we will have time to look into your request.
A number of historical documents and books from the Sherman Room have been digitized! To access these, please visit the Digital Commonwealth catalog.
The Sherman Room is staffed on Monday mornings from 10am-12:30pm, Thursday evenings from 4pm – 7pm, and Saturday mornings 9:30am – 11am. If these hours do not work for you, please let us know and we will try to accomodate your schedule.
If you are interested in using the Sherman Room for meetings, clubs, tutoring, etc, please ask at the library, call us at 413-245-3518, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, since space and time is limited and it must be reserved.
