                                             Italian Library

We are very proud of our library, one of the very few Italian libraries in the State of Massachusetts!
It is devoted solely to Italy and all things Italian, and contains books in English as well as books in the Italian language, all available for
your reading pleasure. Our collection includes many books on the various regions of Italy and well as some cities, travel as well as historical, biographies of famous Italians and a collection of Italian language fiction. Also included are books on the Italian emigration, the Italian American Internment, Italian culture and much more. There is also a 5 DVD series entitled: "Our Story- The Italian American".

The library is being updated, and is in need of books for several of our collections
, especially Juvenile, Genealogy and light Fiction (with an Italian theme), but we welcome book donations on any Italian subject. Any donated books will have a gift label. We have received a number of book donations in memory of a family member or friend.
