Exciting News!

The Lee Library Association is very excited to announce that we have digitized the Valley Gleaner (1857-1902) and Berkshire Gleaner (1902-1944). Now patrons of Lee and from all over the world will have access to these very important papers from Lee. You will be able to use the database in the library or at your home by following this link. We would like to thank the town of Lee and all of our patrons for their continued support. We hope you enjoy searching.

Happy New Year from the Lee Library Association!

The Staff and Board of Directors of the Lee Library wish everyone a 2019 year filled with peace, good health and happiness. We thank you for your continued support.
