The Library Mission Statement

New Strategic Plan FY2022 - 2026

South Hadley Public Library serves as a safe community gathering space where all library patrons are welcomed with dignity and respect. The library’s collections, programs, and services will reflect both the town of South Hadley and the world at large. The library will collaborate with community partners to provide a comfortable environment that is reflective and responsive to the recreational, educational, and cultural needs of our library users.

Go to the Library


Gaylord Memorial Library

The Gaylord Memorial Library, right across from Mount Holyoke College, is a branch of the South Hadley Public Library and offers full library services in a historic setting near the Village Commons and town center.

Access eBooks and eAudiobooks

Homebound Delivery for Residents

Services provided via the Gaylord Memorial Library

Our homebound service is accepting new applications from South Hadley residents who have health or transportation issues that keep them from the library.  Materials are selected and delivered by library staff on a monthly basis. Homebound delivery recipients must be home or have a household member available to receive the contactless delivery at the scheduled date/time.  Interested residents may print out or fill out an online application or call the Gaylord Library at 413-538-5047 to register.

Commission on Disabilities Survey

The Commission is currently doing a survey to help us understand the needs of the community members with disabilities. We are asking for your assistance in the survey. Click here for the survey.

To request a paper survey, contact commission  clerk Larry Dubois at  (413) 531-9561.  Surveys can also be made available in large print.
