ACCESS
All are welcome in the Tower Hill Library found on the lower level of the Stoddard Education and Visitors Center and members may borrow books. The Library has more than 8,000 resources including books, magazines and, dvds on gardening for all ages and abilities. The Library is a great space for reading, quiet study and research. We also offer a children’s area with puzzles, crafts, a ‘please touch’ table, and a comfortable couch to sit and read a favorite story. When it’s warm, head outside to our Reading Garden.

COLLECTIONS
Tower Hill Botanic Garden opened in 1986 but its history as the Worcester County Horticultural Society dates back to the 1840s, and the Library goes back almost as far. Early library holdings began with donations from founders and members, and today the Library provides access to institutional and garden history records and regularly exhibits materials from our archives.

LIBRARY SERVICES

Materials may be borrowed by Tower Hill members for one month. Returns may be made in person, by mail or by returning materials to the Reception Desk when the Library is closed.

The Book Group will not be held in 2018 but hopefully return in 2019. A complete list of books we’ve read from 2011 to 2017 may be found here. All titles are available in the Tower Hill Library.

The Tower Hill Library is part of a project to document the outstanding gardens of Central Massachusetts. 

Tower Hill Library gratefully accepts donations of lightly used books covering all aspects of gardening. We also sell an impressive collection of competitively priced used books when the Library is open. Please email librarian@towerhillbg.org for more information about donations.
