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.

Lee Library Historical Photographs

The visual record of the town and its evolution is found in our photo collection. Photos document all aspects of life--education, religion, disasters, individuals, sports, leisure activities, buildings, and businesses (especially the papermaking and marble industries).

The collection is now online in the Digital Commonwealth repository. You may view it by following this link.
