The historic Adams Free Library has a new director following more than two decades of service by its previous leader. Holli Jayko now oversees more than 31,000 items housed in a building that President William McKinley laid the cornerstone for in 1897.Located at what is now called McKinley Square, the library was built as a Civil War memorial and a meeting place for the Grand Army of the Republic, a veterans’ group. The GAR hall, which remains in its original condition, is believed to be one of a few remaining in New England. Jayko spoke with WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis about her new position and the library’s role in the Adams community.

Jim is WAMC’s Assistant News Director and hosts WAMC's flagship news programs: Midday Magazine, Northeast Report and Northeast Report Late Edition. Email: jlevulis@wamc.org
